Red Hook Summer Premier Party

So last night was the premier party of Spike Lee’s new movie “Red Hook Summer” in Harlem.  I was not able to attend, but a friend went and sent me some great photos.  This seemed to have been a great event and I wish I would have been able to attend (it was my friends bday on Sunday and I needed Monday to recover 😉 )!  So many prestigious people (including Spike himself, Mike Tyson, Gayle King, and Debra Lee) were in the building!

Red Hook Summer is about a young boy from Atlanta who goes to stay with his grandfather for a summer in Red Hook (a part of Brooklyn).  Besides dealing with the big cultural difference of coming to the east coast from the south, his grandfather is also very religious and stuck in his old ways.  The movie looks pretty good and like a classic Spike Lee film, which we haven’t seen in awhile.  I definitely say go out and see it and support Mr. Lee!  It hits theaters Friday, August 10th.

If you go see it, make sure you tweet me (@fromlatonyc) and let me know what you think.  Until next event xoxo…
