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

Did You Know?


Shot completely in 16mm, 79 PARTS is a gritty, period action comedy film that walks the audience back to a time of idiotic small-time hoods, loan sharks, scam artists, Feds, gamblers and illegal Irish and Italian immigrants. The film was shot over a 6 year period and takes place in only seven days--so the actors had to look the same on every shoot, and a good amount of hair color had to be applied to actors who greyed in that period, not to mention keeping an eye on weight loss and weight gain for all the principal talent.
