Storyline

In underground clubs around the country is an undiscovered phenomenon called Slam Poetry where gifted poets fresh off the street go to war with each other through words. One night during one of these rants a gifted poet, JAKE THOMPSON is discovered by an attractive publisher, MARNI ELLIOT looking for new poets. But when their relationship falls apart Jake chases the dream in dark, seedy night clubs as he watches uber hipster David sky rocket to fame and fortune. After hitting bottom, he finally realizes that love is more than words and that sometimes you have to fight for the ones you love. Written by Randolph Kret

A verbal and cinematic tourdeforce
24 July 2006 | by hugh-taylorSee all my reviews

This film is remarkable in that it is both a highly engaging work of film-making but also a great poetic work. The actors, too, pull off a verbal tour de force, especially in scenes when they are "making up" poems off the tops of their heads. If you like past-faced, verbal action, this is your flick. C Thomas Howell is superb as the nasty, too successful "street poet". Writer director Paul Edwards delivers outstanding performances and a nuanced look at the modern phenomenon known as slam poetry. This is also a love story, a film of self-discovery, and a rumination on the creative process. I highly recommend it.
