Bilo jednom u Bruklinu
White Irish Drinkers

Krv je gušća od Bruklina.

Radnja filma je smeštena u 1975. godinu i prati dva brata tinejdžera koji žive u Bruklinu, na dokovima, s ocem nasilnikom i majkom koja je dobronamerna ali pasivna, i bave se sitnim kriminalom. Stariji brat Deni smišlja smeo plan da ukradu dovoljno novca kako bi njih dvojica mogli da pobegnu i to za vreme haosa usled predstojećeg koncerta Rolling Stones-a. Osećajni mlađi brat Brajan je na kraju suočen s izborom – ostati odan bratu, s kim deli čvrstu vezu zasnovanu na ljubavi i mržnji, ili da iskoristi svoj umetnički talenat kao kartu za beg iz beznadežne sadašnjosti.

“The close, cramped intimacy of this film is so real it stings… The performances are uniformly terrific, finding the specific details that create a universal truth.” – Rolling Stone

“Thoughtful coming-of-age story with bracing performances, solid writing and direction by John Gray, and inescapable take-home values that give you a feel-good lift.” – NY Observer

“Bottom Line: Entertaining twists and turns in a clever drama that will win big if it gets the chance.” – Hollywood Reporter
