Storyline

West of Brooklyn takes us on a heartfelt and often humorous journey from Brooklyn, New York to Hollywood, California. "Sebi" is a young Italian American man, a simple street kid and a secret beat poet, who after the death of his mother escapes Brooklyn to join his crew of friends who recently relocated to L.A. These colorful characters from New York are truly fish out of water in L.A. and Sebi longs to find a place he can feel at home. Sebi's friends, a beautiful rich girl from Beverly Hills named "Matty", and his idol, a famous Bronx poet named "Gaetano D'Amico" bring Sebi face to face with his identity and help him find the courage to be exactly who he was all along. Written by Ronnie Marmo

Lovely Funny Film
27 February 2008 | by GingerJohnSee all my reviews

I just saw this film last week in Los Angeles. The director and some of the actors were on hand. I just want to say that it is a lovely movie that has warmth, humor, and tears. I laughed at parts of the movie and cried at other times. I would love to see the movie on the big screen. It is one of those small independent films I think viewers would just gravitate to. The cast is territic and you can see the chemistry they all share. Anyone why has a chance really needs to see it. It is highly recommended. How about the Sundance film festival guys. Get your picture out their. Fans would love it. I hope to see this on the bg screen someday.
