(1994) Uneven, seriocomic picture of an African-American family living in Brooklyn during a summer in the 1970s, seen mostly through the experiences of a 10-year-old girl (Zelda Harris) with loving but troubled parents (Alfre Woodward and Delroy Lindo) and four rambunctious brothers. Director Spike Lee brings sensitivity to this portrait of a youngster whose childhood ends with a death in the family. But the result is squandered in aimless byplay with her raucous brothers, overbearing aunt, and neighborhood eccentrics. Domestic turmoil, a sexual situation, a bathroom scene, petty thefts, glue-sniffing and coarse language. (A-III) ( PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned) Cinemax (cable)
