The drug business seen through fairy tale eyes, 10 November 2003
Author: openeyes from B-Town

"little red" is a film set on the mean streets of Baltimore, Maryland, about drug dealing as seen through the context of the fairy tale "Little Red Riding Hood." Brandon Price, in an amazing film debut, plays Darrell, a smart African-American teenager with a bright future if he can avoid the lures of his tough, drug-ridden neighborhood. The toughest lure is his high school sweetheart, Angel, aka "little red," who joins her older brother, played menacingly by Jossan Robinson, in the drug business. Darrell's dilemma grows more complicated when his three best friends, aka "The Three Little Pigs," are recruited by Angel into the gang. The plot thickens when Angel's brother is murdered, and the ensuing power struggle for control of the gang bodes tragedy for all. The film is at its saddest and most insightful when looking into the motivations and actions of the would-be gangsters. On one hand, they plan and commit terrible adult crimes, yet they remain simplistic children at heart, careful not to miss their little league games. "little red" was aggressively written and directed by first timer Clay Valenti and wonderfully shot by Charles Regner. Check it out.
