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

Loved this Film. It was excellent
5 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I went to the premiere and the movie was awesome. Ronnie is terrific and he produced and wrote a great film. Natalia , who happens to be a favorite of mine and is the reason I attended, was great. Natalia played "Matty" effortlessly. I have to say the rest of the cast was also wonderful, Ronnie in particular. This guy is a great talent and why Hollywood has not picked up on this I cannot imagine. I have to say I laughed at this movie and cried real tears believe it or not. I absolutely fell in love with each and every character in the film. We had a chance to speak with Ronnie Marmo(I am sure he does not remember us)- The writer and producer. He seemed excited about the film and really happy with it. Ronnie if we did not tell you, GREAT GREAT GREAT job. You are a tremendous talent and a real person, not plastic and fake like many in Hollywood. I hope this is the start to great things for you.

Natalia was not there the night we went, but I understand she was at some other screenings. Natty if you are reading this, we love you and great job.
