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

This movie made me Smile
5 March 2008 | by stevoonbroadwaySee all my reviews

I saw a screening of this film a couple of years ago in Jersey. The film was not 100% complete at that time but what I saw I have to say I really thought was great. Ronnie Marmo rocks and I am happy to see this guy who is humble get some attention for a change. This movie has it all, laughs, tears, and all that feel good stuff. You might think this was a chick flick but no way. Guys and gals would love this film equally. Great story, wonderful performances, top notch dialogue. I really believed that these people were all friends and family in real life the chemistry was just that good.

Ronnie best on this film. Glad to see it is done and has been premiered. You are a talented guy and deserve success with all the other *hit coming out of Hollywood. I really hope this movie catches fire.
