Storyline

Tired of the daily grind, construction worker Charlie "Red" Redkin (Gabe Fazio, The Place Beyond the Pines) and his lifelong friends are fed up with the fight for money. When ruthless developer Gene (Ed Setrakian, The Sopranos) and his greedy son Ira (Lev Gorn, The Americans) force the construction business run by Red's father Senior (Bruce Kirkpatrick, The Wire) into debt, desperation and rage twist into a relentless need for revenge. As the pressure of a foreclosure threatens his family's home, Red and his friends are propelled into a life of crime to get cash fast. But when the deceit and corruption become too heavy a burden, "the boys" are pushed to the edge. Together, they are faced with a dilemma that will test their morals, faith, and ultimately, their loyalties to each other. In a world that refuses to let the workingman thrive, they want a better way. Their American dream was stolen, but they will steal it back. Written by Anonymous

True independent film
13 March 2014 | by eddiekreutleSee all my reviews

We all need a periodic escape from the harsh realities of life. Blue Collar Boys does not afford this luxury. Instead, director Mark Nistico's debut feature shoves us headlong into working class veracities we would sooner ignore. This film is not for the easily offended or those lacking in general fortitude. It digs into the unstable crust of the current capitalist system many of us have come to recognize and accept as here and now. It challenges our morals and values. It frustrates, provokes, and irritates while navigating the shadowy margins of right and wrong, necessity and greed. It is a timely film, a microcosm of the large scale struggles, globally and nationally. People pushed to the limit are bound to rebel. The direction, acting, script, editing, score, and soundtrack are all impressive...and all serve well, the layering of themes and sentiments within the piece. Raise your glass to the salt of the earth.
