Movie Info

The lives of four hardworking people living in modern Brooklyn provide the basis of this upbeat drama. Hank is the only high school graduate on his basketball team; he works for Flo in a neighborhood liquor store and is dating Joy, Flo's step daughter. Joy and Hank are 18-year old virgins who are giving careful consideration to sleeping with each other. Hank's father, Milton is a divorced street musician and recovering alcoholic. The story revolves around an upcoming lottery with a $27million jackpot, and everyone in their neighborhood is hoping to win. Joy's father, whom she hasn't seen in ages, bought seven tickets just before he was arrested and sent to jail; Hank, who, unlike his friends, has no taste for drugs or drug dealing, himself has purchased $100 worth of the tickets. The drawing is made and the authorities state that the unclaimed winning ticket is somewhere in their neighborhood.

Audience Reviews for Lotto Land

(***): [img][/img] A very sweet independent film. A fine cast (look for a young Terrence Howard) and a good insight into how some people live in New York.


Working with John, Larry, Wendell, Terrence, Suzanne, Luis, Paul, and the whole crew was an awesome experience. I'm proud to have worked on a film that continues being relevant for young people. We need to make more movies like this for teens!
