Category: Cinema 360º

Having served a year in prison, 24-year-old Keith (McCaul Lombardi) is negotiating with the possibility of starting life anew or sliding into the felonious habits that brought his life to a deadening halt. Drifting between his watchful father (Jim Belushi), various old friends and a bevvy of persuasive local hoods, Keith must decide between reverting to the man he was and the man he could be.

Set in the working-class waterfront of his native Baltimore, this fourth feature from Matthew Porterfield (I Used to Be Darker) exudes the director’s masterly evocation of place and sensitivity to the ways family and community impact an individual psyche. This handsomely rendered recidivism drama is foregrounded by beautiful performances from Belushi, who seems to only get better with age, and Lombardi, who makes an indelible impression in his first leading role.
