Protagonist-apparently just out of jail, trying to survive by being a low-level drug delivery guy. He gets beat up a lot. He's tough but tries not to kill anybody.
Main plot- drug delivery guy has the chance to rescue some other guy's daughter from the clutches of a drug lord. everything else in between is meaningless.
The Local is an essentially American film, not only because it is shot in Brooklyn, New York but also because it celebrates the ever-present capacity to change your life that our system enables.
Another thing I love about this movie is that there are multiple storylines happening simultaneously. This makes the movie constantly engaging on many levels as you can't wait to catch up with each plotline. The layers of emotion weave into each other as one story is heartbreakingly sad and in the next moment, another story is fraught with suspense, while another has a moment of levity.
I highly recommend checking this movie out.
Dan Eberle stars as NoName - the main character - but he also wrote and directed the movie. It is difficult to tell which is his strongest suit because the story is believeable and when you see Eberle as NoName, you are drawn to him.
I hate to sound cheesey, but you can totally walk away from this movie having learned something. It is a story of redemption and you realize that if NoName can redeem himself by saving another, anyone can.
I'd recommend this film to anyone who wants to see something different - in a good way - than what is playing in theatres. This is definitely a story that will envelope you and make you think.

Couldn't even make it to 15 mins. Hated the characters, hated the theme, hated the feel. "Gritty"? Nah...missed it by a mile. Annoying, like stepping in dog foo-doo.Published on January 4, 2013 by M. C. DeWing
