Graphic designer Daniel Goldstein leads the fight to prevent government and big business from razing an historic, Brooklyn, N.Y. neighborhood to make way for a more than a dozen skyscrapers and a new basketball arena for the New Jersey Nets. When the local government announced they would be using eminent domain laws to level the Prospect Heights neighborhood and make way for the Atlantic Yards project, the locals became deeply divided; while some saw the project as a way to bring jobs to the area, others were enraged at the thought of being forcefully evicted from their homes. Later, the government awarded the contract to Forest City Ratner -- a private contractor -- and the wheels of change were set into motion. As construction begins, tensions flare and it begins to appear as if the opponents of the project have run out of options. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Movie is a one-sided joke. The so call leader of the fight is nothing more than a narcissist who does more damage to the economy than good, all in a quest for adulation. Curious that they didn't disclose how much he got for his small little apartment at the end. Keep in mind also the movie was release in 2010 so there are no updates as to the eventual work on the project. Waste of time!
