G (2002)

Rated R

Inspired by the novel, The Great Gatsby, authored by F. Scott Fitzgerald, G details the story of “Summer G” (Richard T. Jones) and Sky Townsend (Chenoa Maxwell).   

The film is primarily narrated by Tre (Andre Royo), a journalist who writes for a magazine devoted to urban music culture.  It opens with Tre visiting the Hamptons, a historically exclusive enclave for the wealthy and elite located on eastern Long Island’s Southfork.  He is there on assignment to secure an interview with Summer G, an elusive, self-made, hip hop mogul. “G” has recently purchased a home in the Hamptons and accompanying him is an entourage who obnoxiously make their presence known in the affluent and reserved community.
