Storyline

On December 7, 1993, a gunman opened fire in a crowded commuter train on Long Island. This fact-based story focuses on the events that swell around Carolyn McCarthy, a woman whose husband is killed and her 26 year old son is severely wounded in the massacre. The result is she is forced out of her comfortable suburban existence and she becomes an out-spoken crusader against assault weapons. The film shifts from her perspective to the mind of the killer and finally to the media frenzy that surrounds both. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Long Island Vs Canada
8 December 2006 | by (Boca Raton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I understand the frustration of seeing a film and a production company abandon the actual locale of the original incident.

But between the unions and the enormous hassles of shooting anywhere in New York...why wouldn't they take a friendlier, more accommodating and efficient route?

Some incredibly great films have been done in New York I'll admit... but you really have to see it from the eyes of the investors, producers and availability of ready and willing talent. And that the logistics of any film undertaking in New York has to be prohibitively expensive and frustrating.

I'd ask DeNiro, Pacino or Woody Allen what they think.
