Renowned director Spike Lee fashions a bold, flavorful and affectionate study of family life based on his
own rich experiences as he chronicles one very special summer in the crowded but cozy Brooklyn neighborhood of
the Carmichael family. Academy Award® nominee Alfre Woodard stars as
Carolyn, a loving, devoted, but fiercely independent mother who along with her musician husband Woody (Delroy
Lindo) struggles to raise her family in difficult but often wonderful circumstances. Complimented by an
energizing, vintage R&B soundtrack, this tender, colorful film is a fitting tribute to an American Family.
