Little Brian
Little Danny


It's early autumn of 1975 in Brooklyn and 18-year-old Brian Leary (Nick Thurston) is killing time, pulling off petty crimes with his street tough older brother Danny (Geoff Wigdor), whom he both idolizes and fears. He doesn't really want to be a criminal, but he doesn't share the dreams of his old friends from their working class neighborhood either. They all yearn for the culturally approved 9-to-5 Civil Service jobs with benefit packages that will carry them through weekends of beer into lazy retirement. Brian doesn't want to end up in a soul-numbing job like his buddies, but he's sure he doesn't want to be like his best friend Todd (Zachary Booth) either. Todd has betrayed their blue-collar roots by accepting a scholarship to college. But Brian has a secret -- he's a talented artist. In the basement of the bagel shop beneath his parent's apartment, he creates impressionistic charcoal and watercolor images of the stifling city that surrounds him. When he puts on his headphones and ... Written by Official site

One of my new favorite Movies!!
8 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Coming from a strong Irish background, the title automatically drew me in and I was hooked from the start.

This is one of those movies that you just don't seem to see anymore. It is real, and plays all your emotions. It is one of those straight forward movies that doesn't beat around anything: it has conflict, humor, the family drama, and romance.

The acting is phenomenal as well too.. Karen Allen, Stephen Lang, and Nick Thurston were PERFECT for their roles.. I think we will be seeing a lot more of Nick after this movie gets out.

Over all I give it a 10 ... and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this movie to anyone!
