I did not like how this movie started but I enjoyed how it took off and ended. Not your cookie cutter type mainstream movie. Worth a watch!

Movie Reviews

People, people who need people, are the .......
Terry Goldman | Kents Store, VA USA | 04/09/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A low budget ensemble film that deserves a wider audience. A character study of a Brooklyn Jewish owned restaurant (a neighborhood insitution for decades) that seems destined to be sold in the name of progress to shrewd developers whose plan to upscale a working class, on the decline neighborhood.

Employees and customers (many, regulars) must come to grips with personal family and societal issues that are all too real.

The acting is first rate, the script a winner with realistic dialogue.Caveat. The film has a "cheaper hand held camera feel" and a somewhat uneven music score but this is a solid piece of cinema that gives us the real tempo and beat of a Brooklyn the way life often is....full of hopes, dreams, racial and ethnic
diatribes, working class versus upscale mentality, the haves and the have nots and so much more."
Great movie!

"i liked this movie a lot... very interesting, realistic relationships between all the characters. i also loved that it gave me a little piece of brooklyn. :)
i won't give too much away... but i'm waiting for a sequel or television series. i would love to know the choices that these characters have made! :)"
Grows on You with Repeated Viewings

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I found this movie to be a bit off putting when I first saw it. So what is this movie about? I asked myself. The answer is a bit simpler than I usually expect and a bit more complex too. It is about a diner located in Brooklyn which is undergoing gentrification. The owners of the diner are expected to sell out to some corporate giants such as Banana Republic and Hard Rock Cafe. The area is run down and has been going down for a long time. The working class people who frequent the restaurant and work there are just on the cusp of poverty. Their lives aren't the greatest, but there is no promise that the area will allow them to better their lives. The diner is a symbol of some stability and safety. The script was written after several practices in repretory theatre. The acting is terrific and very enjoyable to watch. I found that the movie grew on me with repeated viewings. There is always another layer to uncover. A very nice movie and well worth a viewer's time."
