An illicit affair between a niece and her uncle. The dependable older brother and his irresponsible younger brother who may come to blows. Two best friends from Red Hook try to adjust to the new normal economy. These events are the inspiration behind Red Hook Black, a slice of life picture set against the backdrop of the Brooklyn waterfront enclave of the same name. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

""Red Hook Black" crawls forward by means of stilted conversations and vacuous exchanges."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"This slice of Brooklyn "realism" is a triple threat: badly written, directed and acted."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"The characters are wearisomely one-dimensional and their situations and motives almost indecipherable due to poor exposition, weirdly pretentious dialogue and amateurish thesping."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"That this strained film about two friends struggling with jobs and family in a bleak, thickly spread economic milieu is adapted from a play is painfully obvious."
‑ Kalvin Henely, Slant Magazine
"Reprinting its entire script would be the only way to properly convey the unintentionally hilarious awfulness of Red Hook Black, which complements its stilted and goofy writing with equally inept performances."
‑ Nick Schager, Village Voice
