Storyline

In 1979 Brooklyn, Jack Anderson is a down and out struggling law student desperate for a loan to pay his school tuition. Jack is an artist at heart, but decides to go to law school after his father Doug (Eric Roberts) is incarcerated for embezzlement. He's hoping to help his father's case, but without the money to pay his tuition, he'll have to drop out. Everywhere Jack turns, he gets shot down - by the banks, by society and sadly, by girls. Jack's only hope lies in his fellow classmate and horse-betting friend, Gino. Gino's Uncle Dennis, an Irishman with questionable business practices, has the cash Jack needs to pay off his tuition, but that loan comes with a steep and treacherous price. Written by Ari Taub

Brings back the flavor of Brooklyn
5 November 2019 | by thisisperSee all my reviews

This film captures a Brooklyn that is funny, gritty, and larger than life. It brings back a time that will hopefully never die, the New York that I fell in love with, that may have only been in a dream but the one that I would like to experience, if only through movies such as this. We experience a hapless law student caught up in arranged marriage, but is the story really about him? The other characters assert their destiny, unstoppable archetypes of Brooklyn bravado, these characters with more heart and soul than superheroes. Enter the time machine of 79 parts.
