Spike Lee 'Red Hook Summer': Boys meets grandfather in trailer - watch
Spike Lee's latest film continues his 'Chronicles of Brooklyn' series with a story about a boy and his grandfather.
Jules Brown stars as Flick Royale, a boy from Atlanta who goes to stay with his preacher grandfather Enoch Rouse (Clarke Peters) in the Red Hook housing project for the summer.
Torn between his grandfather's religion and the shock of inner city life, it takes the friendship of a young girl (Toni Lysaith) to help him find peace in his surroundings.
James Ransone and Thomas Jefferson Byrd also star in the film, which was written by Lee and James McBride.
Lee had previously said that Red Hook Summer is not a sequel to Do the Right Thing, despite seeing the director reprise his role as Mookie from the 1989 film.
Red Hook Summer will receive a limited release in the US from August 10. A UK date is yet to be confirmed.
