I thought that this might be one of those films where the stereotypes are the whole basis for the movie and to some extent I was right. However it is actually a really well observed film and had me gripped through out. Like the main character here Brian (Nick Thurston) I am a first generation Irish man and so much of the back plot rang true for me. Brian is the younger of two brothers, the elder brother Danny played by Geoffrey Wigdor (`Sleepers') is the Black Sheep and has just come out of prison, he is a cheap street hustler and would be thief. Brian is the thoughtful one who wants to work at the local cinema/rock venue and paint his pictures of urban street life in the shared basement.

Brian has a circle of friends who range from being a proud garbage collector, to a computer pioneer, the only thing they still have in common is their heritage, hatred of disco, love of alcohol and the fact they are white Irish drinkers and they bring some welcome humour to the proceedings.

They have a loving, hard working mother and a hard working, violent, drunken and abusive father. Violence is never far away from the surface when he is around and especially so when he has a skin full, which is pretty much most of the time - a situation I can empathise with. While Brian tries to find love and meaning in his life, Danny seeks only to steal and get away from Brooklyn and a life of being a punch bag, forever. The thing is he loves his brother despite their differences and wants/needs him to get what he wants. Things can only go wrong, but the thing is for who and how ruddy bad?

I really loved this film, it was gritty and dirty and had lots of unnecessary violence, but it struck a nerve with me that meant I could associate with Brian and his hopes and losses.
