Little Brian

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

Please see this Movie in a Theatre!
26 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What an incredible movie! I'm concerned that some of the critics were watching a different film to the public audiences that are rating it with 10 stars. Perhaps they were watching this master-piece through different eyes, or a check wasn't sitting in their popcorn...sorry folks, this movie was made with love and passion and NOT money.

John Gray's tremendous love for the craft and the people that surround him is a testimony and encouragement to all independent film makers that passion is more powerful than money.

I encourage everyone to get out and support top notch Indie film making at it's the screening in Hollywood last night which I attended, the audience gave the film a standing ovation! Unbelievable!
