Punching at the Sun

Tanuj Chopra makes his feature directorial debut with this low-key video about a South Asian teenager in Queens (Misu Khan) who lives in the shadow of his late older brother. A beloved neighborhood figure, the brother was murdered in a holdup one year earlier, yet the hero is still struggling to find his own place in his family and community. His emotional journey—from anomie and rage to catharsis and maturity?—is completely predictable, but a vibrant young cast provides the charm and energy needed to make this work. 82 min.
