About Movie: Red Hook Summer is an upcoming drama movie. An Atlanta resident spends the summer in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York.
Movie Review:- A sullen, Spike Lee-like 13-year-old who calls himself Flik (Jules Brown), up from Atlanta, is deposited by his mother (De'Adre Aziza) for the summer with his grandfather, Baptist Bishop Enoch Rouse (Clarke Peters). The boy, rarely without his iPad 2, has never before met his grandfather, rarely without his Bible
Direction, Performance and Music:- Emphasis on a towering performance by The Wire's Clarke Peter. Film's standout performances, "Red Hook Summer" is weakened by the great divide between its characters. Plot action serves as a weak frame. The treatment of the characters is either clumsy or sentimental or both.
Overall:- Good Movie.
