Editorial Reviews

A coming of age story set in 1975 working-class Brooklyn, in which two teenage brothers living with their abusive father and their well-meaning but ineffective mother are caught up in a life of petty crime. Older brother Danny concocts a daring scheme to steal enough money for the two to escape, timed around the chaos of an upcoming Rolling Stones concert. The sensitive younger brother, Brian, ultimately has a choice: remain loyal to the brother with whom he shares a powerful love-hate bond, or use his hidden talent as an artist as his own ticket out of their dead-end existence.

I've now seen this movie several times. It is inspiring, suspenseful, funny, and the acting is amazing. Stephen Lang deserves an Oscar for his portrayal of an abusive alcoholic father and there are some great performances by up and coming younger actors. This film has one of the better surprise endings I've ever seen and the overall feeling you're left with is one of hope, redemption, and possibility. Definitely take the time to check this one out!

Growing up blue-collar Irish-American in the NYC area, I can relate to this film in almost every sense. From the bar scenes to the dreadful moment the 'old man' comes home from Clancy's Pub, this is an Irish story with the American flag draped around it.
The film revolves around two brothers growing up in 1970s Brooklyn. One's a small-time thief while the other is an aspiring artist just trying to spread his wings and fly out of the city for good. Along the way - romance, violence, temptation, and tragedy strike up until the superb and much-talked-about final scene.
Pour yourself a pint of Guinness and enjoy. This very well made and well acted NY drama will hit very close to home for New Yorkers and Irish viewers especially. Slainte!

4 stars.

This film blew me away with it's impeccable filmography and acting. For an independent film with a $600,000 budget I think it does amazingly well as passing for a film with a much higher budget, and much more seasoned actors.

Avatar's Stephen Lang leads a cast of amazing actors who wonderfully create joy, laughter, suspense and even tears. Some of this is attributed to John Gray, as his talent can be seen in CBS's Ghost Whisperer with Jennifer Love Hewitt.

This is a riveting film and definitely one of my top tens. I agree wholeheartedly with the guy who said it is made stronger by the ending.

I didn't grow up in 1970's Brooklyn but I relate to this film just because some of the settings take you back to a different time and give you a feeling of nostalgia that we can all appreciate. For instance, the notion of it being ridiculous to want to work with computers.

Was lucky enough to see this film in NYC at a film festival. The performances, especially those by Stephan Lang and Karen Allen, are very powerful. Beautifully filmed and deeply moving.

Having grown up in Brooklyn in the '70's in an Irish-American household, I found so much to appreciate in this movie; the sights and scenery, the music, the clothes, the relationships, but it also had a timeless quality to it in both the story and the characters. Brian's story of wanting to escape from cycle of working hard for little reward is always appealing, but the richness of the supporting players really made this movie one of my new "favorites". It was quite poignant, but with some good laughs thrown in.

Of special note, Karen Allen, as Brian's mother, was hauntingly beautiful. At times you pity her, at times you question her, and at times you applaud her strength. She delivered an amazing performance.

Format: DVD
A sincere, cathartic, jagged little pill that offers a certain something; a form of closure akin to This Boy's Life or Good Will Hunting.

Our witty, quippy and sharp-tongued, yet plausibly average star navigates a palpable mid-70's Brooklyn. From an under-privileged neighborhood, Brian's social group fails to understand that college could be anything but an excuse not to get a job. Brian is torn between art and the criminal proclivities of his manipulative and abused older brother, Danny. He may be from a rough neighborhood, but he's a sweet, boyish twenty-or-so with an aw-shucks smile and Elijah Wood's innocence. Hearing the newfound insights of a friend, Brian begins to dream that college could be his way out of this world which he undeniably uses to temper his self-worth.

Stephen Lang (Avatar, TV's Terra Nova) performs excellently as the callous, abusive father. Karen Allen brilliantly plays his overworked wife whose Herculean efforts fail to hold the family together as she casts a blind eye to her husband's actions. Most interactions with the parents are difficult, but there are some soothingly endearing moments like recurring teasing about mom's cooking and nearly forgotten memories of how dad was before he got like this.

Drawing our attention is Brian's artwork. The director carefully utilized this pathway to steer the plot, educe mood and engage undertones about Brian's fragile relationships with the small world he knew, his crumbling family, and his own self doubt.

Format: DVD
I grew up right there at the time(5 blocks away). These characters were bits and pieces of so many families (including my own) I knew growing up in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. There were so many little details (props, furniture, scenery, etc.) in the background that seemed so exact. I felt like I was watching 8mm home movies. The actors really picked up the accent and attitude. It's as if I knew them. It seems as though everytime they make a movie about Brooklyn, something horrible happens at the end. The conflict and climax are considered critical to good storytelling (here it was predictable), but character development with good acting and strong dialogue can (in my opinion) compensate for a predicable and week plot. If anyone wants to experience Bay Ridge, Brooklyn before Disco and John Travolta made it cliche, watch this incredible film. I had many Brooklynites I know on Facebook check it out and they ALL agree. It is the working class Brooklyn of 1975 were alcoholism and brutishness was so common it seemed normal. We are all in there somewhere looking to get out.
