Red Hook Summer (2012)

Directed by: Spike Lee
Country: USA

Plot: A middle-class boy from Atlanta finds his worldview changed as he spends the summer in Red Hook with his deeply religious grandfather.
Review: Spike Lee turns his eyes to Red Hook, Brooklyn, to tell a story about a summer vacation with plenty of religion and social issues in the middle. Spike tries to claim our attention for some reproachable actions of the Church. However, the way he did wasn’t so appealing. I expected more from such delicate theme, and the movie only heats up after 80 minutes, where the quietness gives place to chaotic scenes and surprising revelations. Despite the courage in saying what needs to be said, there’s not much fervor in Spike’s preaching.
