it all rings true
15 June 2000 | by (new york, n.y.) – See all my reviews

it all rings true, and I grew up there. It was interesting hearing them mention places or neighborhoods that I remembered. Though I never knew anyone like the characters- I grew up there earlier-, it was very realistic,never overplayed or succumbing to sensationalism. written in 3wks. by 2 of the actors,and a true story; A beautiful ode to friendship.
