This lobster is worth cracking
One of the things that attracts me to the Borough of Kings is the grit of the people. The willingness to endure the rough times ahead, but still maintain a certain integrity about themselves. Not to say it doesn't exist anywhere else, but it is not celebrated in many other places. A movie that I watched recently has captured the spirit that Brooklynites really do own.
The screenplay was put together by the actual kid in the middle of this story. He wrote, produced and directed the whole production, the son of the character portrayed by Danny Aiello. Not only does the movie give an accurate portrayal, but the production itself is a reflection of this. Like Roger Ebert said, it is definitely "worth a visit."
