A magical film which follows one summer in the life of the Carmichaels, an African-American family living in 1970s Brooklyn. Delroy Lindo and Academy Award nominee Alfre Woodward soar as a married couple --he a struggling jazz musician, she an overworked school teacher--who do their best to keep up with their five energetic children. Academy Award nominee Spike Lee directs with characteristic flair and the film is filled with wonderfully authentic period details and dazzling music.
