Genre: Comedy, Drama. Dir: Spike Lee. Country: USA.
Spike Lee’s vibrant semi-autobiographical portrait of a schoolteacher (Alfre Woodard), her stubborn jazz musician husband (Delroy Lindo), and their five kids living in Brooklyn in 1973. As the kids learn the funny and painful lessons of growing up, Mom and Dad balance their love for each other against the financial and personal difficulties of the creative life, and they all try to get along with the often eccentric neighbours on their block. The great soundtrack includes Sly and the Family Stone, The Jackson Five, Curtis Mayfield, The Staple Singers, and The Chambers Brothers.
