Storyline

West of Brooklyn takes us on a heartfelt and often humorous journey from Brooklyn, New York to Hollywood, California. "Sebi" is a young Italian American man, a simple street kid and a secret beat poet, who after the death of his mother escapes Brooklyn to join his crew of friends who recently relocated to L.A. These colorful characters from New York are truly fish out of water in L.A. and Sebi longs to find a place he can feel at home. Sebi's friends, a beautiful rich girl from Beverly Hills named "Matty", and his idol, a famous Bronx poet named "Gaetano D'Amico" bring Sebi face to face with his identity and help him find the courage to be exactly who he was all along. Written by Ronnie Marmo

Really Great Film
13 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A couple of fans of Natalia Livingston's and I went to see this movie when it premiered in LA at the 68 Cents Theatre in LA a couple of months back. I have been anxiously awaiting some sort of release date but nothing at this point which is a shame because a lot of people are missing out on a great movie.

As a fan of Natalia's, we all thought she was terrific. She was vulnerable, sweet, sensitive in this movie like she is in person. As for the rest of the cast, I think the lead Ronnie Marmo who also wrote this film is another undiscovered talent in Hollywood along with Natalia. He is one of the best things about this film and the story he wrote here is just so real and heartwarming. I saw the film Juno and even though the subject matter in this film and Juno were completely different, it reminded me of that movie maybe be cause there was humor and heartbreaking moments throughout the film. When Sebi's mom died I was crying.

Anyway, I have no idea how and when this is going to be released. I just hope they get this film into a film festival so that many others in the industry can see how wonderful a movie this is. It is a travesty that this movie has not been distributed yet. Audiences out there are really missing out on a lovely independent film. Little Miss Sunshine here we come.
