Joey, a young boy, runs away to Coney Island after he is tricked into believing he has killed his older brother. Joey collects glass bottles and turns them into money, which he uses to ride the rides. Written by
Suffice it to say, during these tumultuous days of politics, greed, inhumanity and countless other murky words describing our sign of the times, this film made me feel like a child again.
I'm a proud New Yorker and the Coney Island setting was very real to me. Little Richie Andrusco performed as though unaware of the camera capturing his every waver, dislike and amusement. A truly adorable child who by now is probably someone's grand-daddy!
The reviews I've read, have all concluded it similarly, "...once you see it, you'll never forget it."
Bravo, to all independent movie producers/directors!
