A GUIDE TO RECOGNIZING YOUR SAINTS (2006)
The true story of a pivotal summer on the hot, sweaty, violent streets of mid-80’s Astoria, Queens – the summer that changed not only writer/director Dito Montiel, but the lives of everyone around him. Torn between his ill father, his domineering friend and protector Antonio, the neighbourhood war and the lustful temptations of youth, Dito struggles against his desire to escape, running away from everything he knows. He finds redemption 15 years later when he returns to Queens and faces the “saints” that have influenced his life. Starring Robert Downey Jr., Shia LaBeouf, Channing Tatum, Dianne Wiest, Chazz Palminteri and Rosario Dawson. Sundance/Venice Winner.
