Set in New York, this charming coming-of-ager is a tender tale of teenage friendship. Brooklyn boys Jake and Tony become best pals when Jake’s parents, Brian and Kathy, move into the apartment above the shop run by Tony’s mother, Leonor. Director Sachs beautifully observes the boys’ time together, allowing their friendship to flourish organically. But inevitably, trouble arises. The shop was leased from Brian’s late father, and when Brian discovers that Leonor is paying far below the market rent, he sets in motion a chain of events that threatens to rip the boys apart. This nostalgic but never sentimental look at childhood is also a story about how innocence is often punctured by the complexities of grown-up life. Subtle and telling, the result is a gem.
