Storyline

In Providence's Italian neighborhood, Federal Hill, five young men face their choices as they become adults. Bobby, who's sort of dim, owes $30,000 to a counterfeiter who's demanding payment; he asks Ralph, a gifted cat burglar, to help and Ralph comes up with a plan. Later, Frank's dad, who is one of the Hill's top mobsters, wants to have a talk with Ralph about some of this plan. Meanwhile, Ralph's best friend Nicky falls hard for Wendy, a rich blond from Brown, and Nicky begins to imagine a future with her away from Providence. Ralph thinks Nicky's making a big mistake and sets out to prove it. When Ralph insults Frank's dad, things come to a head. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

An Anti Gay film ???
19 March 2001 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

Many critics say this film gives off an anti-gay message. Ralph (played by Nicholas Turturro ) throughout the film mentions several gay remarks that are tasteless and crude. Hard to ignore, Ralph makes it clear to the audience that he has a problem with gay people. The reason for this is not because he hates gay people. The reason is because Ralph himself is gay! Take a good look at the relationship between Raplph and Nicky while you watch the film. I believe Ralph seems prejudice towards gay people to hide the fact that he is. An excellent independent film, Federal Hill was shot in Providence, Rhode Island. Good acting, great direction, and a powerful story, It is one of Nicholas Turturro's best performances.
