Can a young person in the South Bronx pursue a dream that isn't tied to crime, gang-banging, prostitution, violence, and racism? Tommy is a natural leader and a gifted artist. When Allen, a white kid, moves into the neighborhood with his single mom, he's a victim of constant harassment until Tommy offers friendship. Meanwhile, a corrupt cop hits on Allen's mother and, when she rebuffs him, vows revenge. Forces beyond Tommy and Allen's control put them in the hands of the criminal justice system. A local murder, a rivalry between two young women, and the hot temper of Tommy's older brother make things even more difficult for the friendship and dreams of the young men.Written by
Last year while I was over my Uncle's house for Thanksgiving I found this movie on the TV. I have to say that it touched me and sucked me into it immediately after watching a few seconds of it. I can't deny half of it had to deal with that I'm attracted to Frankie Negron but it was a all-around good movie. I enjoyed seeing my fellow PRs depicted as people. Not as gang-bangers or whatever others like to see us as. Yet what I really appreciated about this movie was that they didn't try to "clean" them up; they showed that even if you grow up in a bad environment that dosen't mean that you don't have any morals or standards. Frankie Negron showed through his character that beauty can grow from concrete. The immense talent and sacrifice that his character endured depicted this. Showing that he befriended someone different from the rest of the neighborhood kids was a great example of acceptance. All around a good movie that touched me. I give it and 7.5 out of 10.
