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.

Feel Good Movie!
5 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A few months ago, I had the opportunity to see a screening of West Of Brooklyn. The screening was done in New Jersey. Well, I just want to say that it is a great movie that has a little bit of everything. It makes you laugh and cry. I love these types of movies that have just enough of each for someone to enjoy. I hope to see this movie on the big screen someday. The performances by all the actors were great. The chemistry on screen by them is top notch. You think that these people really are family! If you get a chance to see this movie, I highly recommend it. Good job to the writer, director and actors involved! Mike
