The latest Spike Lee Joint arrives on Blu-ray this month.
Image Entertainment is set to release 'Red Hook Summer' on Blu-ray on December 21.
'Red Hook Summer' tells the story of Flik Royale, a sullen boy from middle-class Atlanta who has come to spend the summer with the religious grandfather he's never met before, Bishop Enoch Rouse, in the housing projects of Red Hook. Things quickly get off on the wrong foot, as Bishop Enoch relentlessly attempts to convert Flik into a follower of Jesus Christ. Between his grandfather's constant preaching and the culture shock of inner-city life, Flik's summer appears to be a total disaster--until he meets Chazz Morningstar, a pretty girl his age, who shows Flik the brighter side of Brooklyn. Through both the love of his new found friend and, eventually, his grandfather, Flik begins to realize that the world is a lot bigger than he'd ever imagined.
Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements include a director's commentary, a behind the scenes featurette, and a music video.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.97.
