FILM: Gimme The Loot
Could there be a better fitting Mass Appeal summer movie?
Coming of age story. Check. New York City backdrop. Check. Festival De Cannes official selection. Check. Graffiti-centered plotline. Double check! Need the voice of reason offer any more proof for simpletons like us to run out and go see Gimme The Loot—writer and director, Adam Leon’s feature film debut? The flick centers around two friends, Sofia and Malcolm, and their plans to bomb the famous CitiField apple in Queens—home of the New York Mets. Unfortunately their way in isn’t cheap and neither are their thrills and encounters in the big city of dreams.
