Amazing!
13 December 2012 | by (Costa Rica) – See all my reviews

This was one of the great surprises you can have when renting out what proves to be a real "sleeper".

The acting was amazing, Prince Adu was absolutely brilliant and I just couldn't believe that this man had no former experience as an actor. I'm fairly convinced that we will see much more of this man in the future.

In fact, it was almost as much fun to watch the specials and to get to experience the story behind this film as it was watching the movie itself.

The story is multi-faceted, deeply engaging and warmhearted.

There is a lot of truth in this movie and as somebody who has spent over 8 years living in NYC, it opens your eyes to what rich stories this city has to tell.

This movie is one of those rare examples where you sense that while they shot it, everything just fell into place perfectly. There is something truly magic about The Prince Of Broadway.
