Storyline

Emotionally devastated by the death of his uncle, Boston carpenter Jack O'Toole (McIntyre) writes a play inspired by the man's wake. When nobody will produce the play, Jack quits his job to produce it himself, imagining that this play will give a new start to the strained relationship Jack has with his father. But the only stage Jack can afford is in the back room of a neighborhood pub. In this humble environment, Jack pulls together a theater company of sorts and brings his story to the stage, and in the process he brings together his family and friends and helps them move beyond their loss. Written by Masood, Mashhad, IRAN

8 May 2007 | by bundarSee all my reviews

I saw On Broadway at the IFF Boston in a packed theater. I was not expecting much going in but to my surprise I really enjoyed it. The story was uplifting with a good balance of comedy and drama, despite the fact the film starts out with and revolves around a fatal accident. It is the characters themselves that bring the film to life and carry it through to the end. Superb storytelling with both touching emotional moments and character dialogue that made me laugh throughout. In the end, the film has a redeeming quality that leaves you satisfied as you exit the theater. Even weeks later, I find myself repeating joke or piece of dialogue from the film that made me laugh. Probably the best independent film I've seen this year and definitely worthy of a place on the DVD rack.
