About this movie

Make yourself at home with the Carmichael family as they experience one very special summer in their Brooklyn neighborhood that they've affectionately nicknamed 'Crooklyn'. Renowned director Spike Lee fashions a bold, flavorful picture of family life that People Magazine calls his 'most affectionate work.' Academy Award nominee Alfre Woodard stars as Carolyn, a loving, but fiercely independent mother who along with her musician husband (Delroy Lindo) struggles to raise her family in difficult but often wonderful circumstances. Complemented by an energizing, vintage R&B soundtrack, this tender, colorful film is a fitting tribute to an American family.

This is my favorite movie of all time and it makesme feel things that I never thought a film could make me feel. My empathetic and sympathetic feelings towards this movie are difficult to describe, just know that I am not a very emotionl person, but this movie pulled it out of me in a way.

This movie is the best. It doesn't remind of my family, but lots of families that I grew up with. I watched it when it first came out and recently watched it again. I enjoyed it just as much and maybe even more than the first time.. I identified with Troy on so many levels its unreal.. The Lee family did an excellent job in writing this, and Spike Lee did an excellent job in director it!
