Critics Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
A tough, authentic street drama born, bred, and shot in the no-spin zone of working-class South Boston.

The New York Times
It tells a good story well, and in the process quietly says a little something about what it means to look at the American dream from the bottom up.

Wow. This movie started off great. In fact up until the last 30 minutes I was really enjoying it. I really wonder what was up with the tacked on silly ending. Ended up like a bad made-for-tv movie. Which is a shame because the first half reminded me...

Great acting, very well done movie, compelling story. But it didn't add up for me. I never really cared much about what was happening or about the characters themselves. Just because its the truth doesn't mean its that interesting.
