Distributor: First Look Pictures Releasing

“Sometimes the only way to move forward is to go back.”

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Dito is a successful writer living in Los Angeles, who is summoned home to Astoria after a 15-year absence when his father becomes seriously ill. Memories of his youth come flooding back as he revisits the old neighborhood, attempts to rebuild a relationship with his father and encounters his ‘saints’—Dito’s few childhood friends who aren’t in prison or dead. As Dito finds himself whisked back into the youthful events that shaped him, an unforgettable cast of characters unfolds to the sweltering heat of summer 1986. These include Laurie, Dito’s childhood sweetheart; Mike O’Shea, a transplanted Scot with an Irish name who dreams of becoming a punk rock musician; Giuseppe, a reckless, destructive and possibly insane member of Dito’s street posse; and the unforgettable Antonio, Dito’s cocky and volatile best friend grappling with an abusive father.”

Negative—My husband rented this movie and we could not even get through the first 10 or 15 minutes before I walked out of the room. The f-word was so heavy! Within the short time we had the movie on, there was a very offensive sex scene. Please do not bother seeing this movie. It is absolutely not worth seeing.

Negative—If you are walking in a movie rental store and pick up this movie put it right back down! I made the mistake of renting it. The story line seemed good and I was familiar with the actors, but the movie was a waste of time and money. The movie was difficult to follow, there were scenes that served no purpose(which of course contained nudity), and it had the most vulger language I have ever heard in a movie, every other word was foul. I watched the entire movie hoping for a “happy ending,” or at least one to redemmed the movie but, there was none. I was very dissapointed in the young actors of this movie, Channing Tatum and Shia LaBeouf their other movies have been very good, but this one does not sit well with me. Parents do your kids a favor tell them NO!
