Two brothers from southwest Detroit struggle to improve their lives. Unable to afford college and faced with expulsion - and meanwhile supporting his mother - Jason turns to stripping which turns to prostitution, posing a huge dilemma since he has just begun the first true love relationship of his life. Bobby's own drug habit spirals him down into a darker and darker place, exasperated by the re-emerging memory of the horrible childhood secret he shares with Jason. Written by Anonymous

Magic Mike meets Mystic River
9 August 2015 | by Ingo RautenbergSee all my reviews

With Indie films you don't benefit from prominent writers and famous box office actors. So the story and the acting are of utmost importance. Not to say there aren't notables in this gritty story -- as Sammy Sheik (American Sniper and Lone Survivor) does a commendable (and funny) job in his role as DJ.

Filmed entirely in Detroit, the film has an authentic, gritty feel -- with score and music that are from Detroit musicians as well. Based on the true life adventures and experiences of Jonathan Stanley (cowriter, producer and lead actor) as Jason, with Matt Lockwood as his older brother Bobby -- the story relates how Bobby's inner demons surface after being released from prison. Continuity and background -- through smart flashbacks -- further to help in developing the story and endear sympathy for the two brothers.

I won't say more except it's a very worthwhile film that's at times funny, poignant and heartbreaking. I remember being impressed when I saw it at its debut and this feeling was even more solidified the second time around. I wasn't expecting the movie to be as good as it is. Kudos to all those who worked so hard to make this film.
