Movie Info

In this gritty Philadelphia-based thriller, Sully (Lawrence Michael Levine), former frontman of a once prominent punk band, anxiously trudges toward a new world in order to remain in his young son's daily life when ex-bandmate Mick (Benjamin Ellis Fine) catches him mid-stride with a promise to make good on an old debt. In one hellish night, that stretches till dawn, Sully chases Mick through the recesses of Philadelphia in his fight to get back home.(c) Breaking Glass

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

A repetitive, sluggishly paced nocturnal rumination on why we bother reuniting with old friends we purposefully left behind.

Damon Maulucci and Keir Politz make a fine feature debut with this small, punchy drama.

The script is solid, but the film's greatest assets are Levine's visage and performance.

The film is intriguing in its character study and journey, buoyed by the performances of its leads.

Film Threat

Sort of a minor-key, naturalistic variant on themes explored in Edgar Wright's 'The World's End,' as a suburban male 'soccer mom' is pulled back into a demimonde of punk rock music and sexual possibility by the surprise return of his 'toxic' old bandmate.
