Synopsis

The day-to-day joys and frustrations of Troy, a young girl living in 1970s Brooklyn with her four older brothers and her loving but complicated parents. Spike Lee’s semi-autobiographical tale recalls a season of jump rope games, Knicks super-fandom and the burgeoning influence of Soul Train.

Crooklyn Directed by Spike Lee

Critics reviews

Lee’s filmmaking is as exuberant here as it was in SCHOOL DAZE, with the director trying out all sorts of cinematic devices as though he were a kid first discovering the medium. At the same time, CROOKLYN is as vivid a depiction of poverty as you’ll find in mainstream American cinema of the 1990s—one memorable episode revolves around the main character (a nine-year-old girl presumably based on Joie) experiencing embarrassment over having to pay for groceries with food stamps.

Foremost among the stereotypes undone by Spike Lee’s “Crooklyn” is the usual idea of a Spike Lee film. . . . Instead, “Crooklyn” is so mild that it’s the first Spike Lee film with the potential to be turned into a television show. More important, it’s the first one to display real warmth of heart.
