Rated NR · 2009
Like Spike Lee’s 25th Hour, this thoughtful urban drama follows a young New Yorker (Ephraim Benton) during his final day of freedom before going to jail for dealing dope. He’s torn between the father-figure drug kingpin who bankrolled him, the girlfriend who feels she deserves better, and his hardworking single mother, who’s in danger of losing the family home in Queens. His two brothers—the elder sadder and wiser, the younger callow and impulsive—correspond to the warring sides of the protagonist’s own personality as he considers going straight. Director Rik Cordrero (who’s done music videos for Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, and Busta Rhymes) chooses substance over flash, focusing on behavior and motivation rather than the gunplay of most stories about street life. The resulting impact lingers.
