On his last day in the city, he persuades his three oldest friends to help him retrace their greatest adventure together: a walk down the entire length of Manhattan.

Great film
28 May 2014 | by gabe-159See all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to catch the premiere screening last month followed by an insightful Q&A. Wonderfully scripted and directed by Danny Jacobs and Darren Grodsky. A tremendously fun and energetic love letter to Manhattan. Beautifully shot in an array of familiar and not so familiar locations, showing the appeal of both the rhythm and noise of the busy city streets as well as the haunting beauty found in forgotten dilapidation. Consistently funny and engrossing with a charming and skilled cast. Highlights include Danny Jacobs lovable performance contrasting the deadpan curmudgeon Wyatt Cenac. I'm not sure if it inspired me to explore Manhattan, or just made me feel like they took care of it for me. Loved it. Watch it!
