Borough of Kings is a dramatic film about a young man trying to avoid falling into the criminal lifestyle in Brooklyn. Jimmy (James Stanek) lives in the very shady South Brooklyn, but his primary goal is to get out. He comes from a long line of firemen, and after the death of his father, his family would like to see him follow with that path. His best friend Tommy Devito (Patrick Newall) has mob ties, and offers Jimmy a chance to get involved himself. However, Jimmy has a passion for the stage, and chooses to follow it, landing a role in a modern production of Macbeth. His director Helen Manners (Olympia Dukakis) sees talent and potential in the troubled young man as as actor, but all his dreams and plans could become completely derailed when Jimmy witnesses a vicious murder at the hands of the mob. Elyse Lewin directs this unconventional twist on a conventional tale, about a the struggle between following your dreams and compromising yourself.moreless
