Storyline

Tired of the daily grind, construction worker Charlie "Red" Redkin (Gabe Fazio, The Place Beyond the Pines) and his lifelong friends are fed up with the fight for money. When ruthless developer Gene (Ed Setrakian, The Sopranos) and his greedy son Ira (Lev Gorn, The Americans) force the construction business run by Red's father Senior (Bruce Kirkpatrick, The Wire) into debt, desperation and rage twist into a relentless need for revenge. As the pressure of a foreclosure threatens his family's home, Red and his friends are propelled into a life of crime to get cash fast. But when the deceit and corruption become too heavy a burden, "the boys" are pushed to the edge. Together, they are faced with a dilemma that will test their morals, faith, and ultimately, their loyalties to each other. In a world that refuses to let the workingman thrive, they want a better way. Their American dream was stolen, but they will steal it back. Written by Anonymous

A Film Worth Watching
12 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

It's rare to find a film that prompts an array of emotions throughout - anger, happiness, despair, fear, satisfaction, contempt, pity, enthusiasm... Every single character in this film is multi- faceted and you learn to understand every single one of them, whether you like them or not. There are no stereotypical archetypes in "Blue Collar Boys", just a glimpse into the life of an imperfect family that is so authentic you feel like these are people you already know. It's refreshing to find a filmmaker brave enough to make a film that does not pander to audiences or push an agenda, but rather provides a gripping story that showcases realism through art.
