[Review] Back in the Day

23 May 2016 2:01 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There’s a certain kind of charm that comes from the kind of potentially mob-affiliated working class that you find in pockets of neighborhoods at the heart of the boxing drama Back in the Day. Written by and starring William DeMeo as Anthony, a kid from Brooklyn, he’s born to an Italian mother Mary (Annabella Sciorra) and Puerto Rican dad Jose (Manny Perez). He’s often the subject of jokes, adding an extra barrier of adversity that fuels his rage from launching firecrackers into a racist neighbor’s window to beating up a neighborhood pedophile — and, boy, can he punch. After his mother dies, young Anthony (played as teen as Christian DeMeo) is soon taken under the wing of powerful mob bosses (Michael Madsen and Alec Baldwin) who support his endeavors to train as an armature boxer under Eddie ‘Rocks’ Trevor (Danny Glover).
