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.

Sweet Lovely Film
4 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was visiting a friend in Los Angelas a couple of weeks back. She somehow was able to get tickets for the premiere of this film. I for one like independent films so I was excited about going. Needless to say I was not disappointed. This was a wonderful heartwarming, funny, and sad film. The dialogue was great and the acting even better. I have been a fan of Joe Mantegna's for years and never realized he was appearing in this film, but I have to say all of the characters and acting were top notch and the story very sweet. I can't wait for this film to be more widely distributed. I hope it catches on so that the audiences can see what I saw in this film. Congratulations to all the of players in this film for making it an enjoyable evening for me.
