A 19 year old Brooklyn boy who is torn between two worlds when his photography portfolio wins him a partial scholarship to NYU. He must figure out how to balance his Italian neighborhood roots with the expansive, sophisticated world on the other side of the East River. This compelling coming-of-age story combines suspense, murder and loyalty. Based on Tim McLoughlin's novel "Heart of the Old Country." Written by
Really good modern New York streetwise gangster movie. The Narrows has a wide range of good acting from the cast, but Titus Welliver as the local mob boss was so good he scared me. Vincent D'Onofrio was as good as he always is, as one of the local underlings & the father of the main character, Mike Manadoro played by Kevin Zegers. Kevin Zegers I had not seen before, but he held his own throughout the flick & I hope to see him again. The rest of the cast helped the movie for me come out as one of those huge surprises you come across when you search through a list of nameless movies to find a sleeper hit & "The Narrows" was just that. Also, Sophia Bush as Mike Manadoro's new upscale girlfriend, well she was just hot. If you have a chance to see this do, it will be well worth your time.
