Red Hook Summer tells the story of Flik Royale [Jules Brown] — a sullen young boy from middle-class Atlanta who has come to spend the summer with his deeply religious grandfather, Bishop Enoch Rouse (Clarke Peters), in the housing projects of Red Hook.
Having never met before, things quickly get off on the wrong foot as Bishop Enoch relentlessly attempts to convert Flik into a follower of Jesus Christ. Between his grandfather’s constant preaching and the culture shock of inner-city life, Flik’s summer appears to be a total disaster — until he meets Chazz Morningstar [Toni Lysaith] — a pretty girl his age — who shows Flik the brighter side of Brooklyn. Through her love and the love of his grandfather — Flik begins to realize that the world is a lot bigger, and perhaps a lot better, than he’d ever imagined.
From creative genius Tim Burton — “Alice in Wonderland,” The Nightmare Before Christmas” — comes Frankenweenie — a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life–with just a few minor adjustments.
He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.
