'Fresh'

Joiuyoiu

Long story short: "City of God" in Brooklyn, New York.

Fresh is a 12-year-old kid played by Sean Nelson who's simply trying to stay alive amidst hellish surroundings.

I don't know how this 1994 film eluded me until last week.

It's the only movie I've ever seen in which Samuel L. Jackson (Fresh's father) was relegated to background scenery by the power of another actor's presence.

Superb movie.
