Storyline

In Providence's Italian neighborhood, Federal Hill, five young men face their choices as they become adults. Bobby, who's sort of dim, owes $30,000 to a counterfeiter who's demanding payment; he asks Ralph, a gifted cat burglar, to help and Ralph comes up with a plan. Later, Frank's dad, who is one of the Hill's top mobsters, wants to have a talk with Ralph about some of this plan. Meanwhile, Ralph's best friend Nicky falls hard for Wendy, a rich blond from Brown, and Nicky begins to imagine a future with her away from Providence. Ralph thinks Nicky's making a big mistake and sets out to prove it. When Ralph insults Frank's dad, things come to a head. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

"And your Johnny wanna buy a kilo from Federal Hill"
7 June 2019 | by coolidgebutchSee all my reviews

This is Correntes child, he shot this with a 35 mm black and white raw stock kodak. There is no Hollywood here. I dont like giving spoilers during my not so professional reviews. What i could tell you that this movie is definitely for mob movie lovers. The fact that Frank Vincent is in this made me watch. There is something about the black and white that makes this even grittier and real anyone who grew up in a italian neighborhood could really appreciate this. If you like mean streets or raging bull you will love this. As a matter of fact if your a sopranos fan this is a must see. Definitely one of my all time favorite mob flicks of all time.
