Storyline

A young man, paroled under house arrest, is forced to reconnect with his estranged father while coming to terms with an unspeakable trespass. An injured Iraq war veteran embarks on a blind journey of vengeance against those he deems responsible for his brothers death. As the two stories intertwine and collide, both men fight to reconcile their past, present, and ultimately, the meaning of their lives. Through the powerful use of visual narrative, a diverse musical score, and truly touching performances by an all New York cast, JailCity brings together disparate lives in a distinctive urban setting, struggling with universal themes of tragedy, redemption, love, and the futility of revenge.

great movie
9 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie with some amazing acting from a cast of relatively unknown actors. It has a very authentic feel to it, and no part of the story seems forced. The director doesn't use any of the cheap tricks that I'm sick of seeing in these kinds of movies. There is clever humor in just the right places but it doesn't distract from the dramatic plot line. The story is not new, but the writer/director manages to stay away from Hollywood clichés. Jailcity demands the viewer's attention by including subtle sub-plots which put the story-telling on another level. I saw this movie at a movie festival and was pleasantly surprised. I don't know if its released but it's definitely worth watching.
