Two boys (Skylan Brooks & Ethan Dizon) are abandoned by their junkie ho mothers to fend for themselves on the rough side of Brooklyn. The story is relentlessly bleak and there are weak spots in the writing. That said, the performances of these two newcomers are sweet, touching and amazingly accomplished. The supporting cast includes some impressive names (Jennifer Hudson, Anthony Mackie) and director George Tillman Jr. manages to mine the drama without resorting to too much melo. While this film is dark and dismal, the pluck of this duo and the simple brilliance of the two actors is affecting.
