This year marks the 20th anniversary of Spike Lee’s semi-autobiographical film, Crooklyn, which came on the eve of his expensive and controversial Malcolm X. We take a look at what’s happened to the cast since then.
Starring Zelda Harris, Delroy Lindo and Alfre Woodard, Crooklyn was about a young child, Troy, and her daily life as the only girl in a household full of boys. The film would mark one of the few times where the critically acclaimed filmmaker toned down his subject matter to focus on a lighter subject.
Lee and his cinematic cohorts managed to take cinephiles back in the day to where everyone knew your name, watched out for your kids, played stickball and hide-n-go-get-it. Crooklyn was the kind of epic movie that today’s youth would never think existed, and now, almost 20 years to the day since its release we’re playing “where are they now” with the film’s cast.
