Storyline

Dennis Sullivan, an average NYC accountant is assigned to work with a wealthy young widow and her son, Jake - A boy obsessed with the televised superhero 'Man America'. Dennis sees how Jake uses the TV hero to fill the void left by his deceased father. Moved by the boy's loss, Dennis heads for the 'Imagination Superstore' in search of the beloved costume. Once inside the dressing room, Dennis listens as the shop falls prey to a knife-wielding robber. Now in costume, Dennis springs into action to boot the thug from the store with security cameras capturing all. Once the footage hits the airwaves, a media frenzy erupts, leaving an entire city longing for more Man America. Now Dennis must choose between the safety of obscurity or providing his costumed hope to others. Written by Anonymous

Fun & Feel Good Winner
26 September 2011 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

My wife and I had the privilege of seeing this fun film at The Coney Island Film Festival, where it won Best Feature - Rightfully so. The festival was a commute from mid Manhattan but Somebody's Hero made the journey worth while.

Although there were some unique movies at the event, this film had an even flow and told a story. There was nothing that didn't work for me, in fact I was able to loose myself in the sweet story. My wife was moved to tears and adores Christopher Gorham - again - rightfully so :) Very happy to have seen this wonderful movie and enjoyed the story message very much. A+
