The beauty of hope and the power of unity form the foundation of this tale of youthful love, drugs, and poverty in the City of Brotherly Love. Seven-year-old Babo suffers from asthma, and lives with his mother in a dangerous section of North Philly. In an attempt to impress a girl who's well out of his league, their scheming neighbor Demitri attempts to pass as a brainy bookworm. Meanwhile, as well-off art student Michelle falls into a drug-ridden affair with her dealer, Jacob, Kaleef and Jill struggle to save their marriage while bringing "produce to the people," and their teenage son, Heslin, bulks up for the World's Strongest Man competition. Rosario Dawson, Naomie Harris, and Paul Dano star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Shows the lives of some kids that are on the brink of poverty go thru the motions of their lives by not working and smoking pot..But its not even as exciting as that.
In fact its just plain boring. The ONLY scenes that Rosario dawson is in-- which last 14 min of the whole flick -are halfway decent.Why they put her name in there and only give her 14minutes of film time is false advertising , misleading and gives false hope that the film will be good...which is far from being even mediocre.
Political piece of junk. The whole movie is about poor people doing drugs and then at the end they all have a rally for health care and an end to poverty...maybe they should try getting a job or maybe not spending their hard earned hooking money on drugs. What, no jobs in the inner city? Move!
