The Carmichaels — father Woody (Delroy Lindo), a struggling jazz musician; mother Carolyn (Alfre Woodard), a schoolteacher; their four rambunctious boys, Clinton, Wendell, Nate and Joseph; and youngest daughter, Troy — navigate life in Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of 1973 in CROOKLYN, Spike Lee's semi-autobiographical family tale, co-written with siblings Joie and Cinqué Lee. Combining nostalgia for a bygone New York, knockabout comedy and heartfelt family drama, CROOKLYN has become something of a fan favorite among Lee's films, not least for its stellar soundtrack, featuring songs by Curtis Mayfield, Sly and the Family Stone, The Jackson 5, The Staple Singers, Stevie Wonder and James Brown. DIR/SCR/PROD Spike Lee; SCR Joie Lee, Cinqué Lee. U.S., 1994, color, 115 min. RATED PG-13
