God's Pocket – Film Review – The Kindlings Live at Sundance

Sundance-gods-pocketJohn Slattery's directorial debut, "God's Pocket" stars the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman in one of his quieter roles as Mickey Scarpato, outsider to the Boston neighborhood known as God's Pocket. "Mickey Scarpato's crazy stepson, Leon, is killed in a construction “accident,” and Mickey quickly tries to bury the bad news with the body. But when a local columnist comes sniffing around for the truth, things go from bad to worse. Mickey finds himself stuck in a life-and-death struggle compounded by a body he can't bury, a wife he can't please, and a debt he can't pay." - Sundance Film Institute

 

Listen to host Dick Staub, Author and Professor Dr. Jeff Keuss, and  Josh Staub - Visual Effects Supervisor at Disney Animation - in this in depth review about a film that about a neighborhood that appears God has forgotten. Is there life after death and who will remember you? Is redemption possible and what does it look like? How do we navigate the crushing weight of powers that go beyond our capacity to change?
