Movie Info

"Southie" is common usage in Massachusetts for a resident of South Boston. John Shea directed and co-scripted (with James Cummings and Dave McLaughlin) this low-budget crime drama which won the American Independent Award at the 1998 Seattle Film Festival. Out of money and out of luck, Danny Quinn (Donnie Wahlberg) leaves NYC and returns home to South Boston where his dysfunctional family is allied with an Irish Mafia crowd. When Danny's pals open a private casino with an assist from a different Irish Mafia group, this leaves Danny stuck in the middle when trouble erupts between the two factions.

Critic Reviews for Southie

All Critics (8)

The acting excellence is ultimately cancelled out by the derivative nature of the story, which is not presented in a terribly fresh or distinctive manner.

A very familiar crime story, one that has been often done in recent times.

I wound up liking this more than when I first saw it many years ago; there's nothing new at all about the wrong-un trying to go straight surrounded by hard times but it kind of works . . .

Was a big fan of Donnie Wahlberg since NKOTB and him being older brother to Mark only makes it better....good movie about the life growing up in South Boston. Donnie in with the wrong guys got ran out of town then returned years later to see his family and ending up in the same mess that drove him out of town to begin with. Donnie Wahlberg is a great actor.
