From Uli Edel, acclaimed director of Christiane F
comes this celebrated adaptation of Hubert Selby Jr.'s controversial 1964 masterpiece about a disparate group of people, forging a sliver of hope in a relentless and cruel Brooklyn in 1952.
Strike-wary union leader Harry, transvestites Georgette and Regina, street-wise hooker Tralala, trucker Big Joe and his pregnant daughter are just a few of the tortured souls whose destinies intermingle one simmering summer.
It's a time which sees the tensions of these mean streets finally combust in a volatile explosion of union riots and civil unrest. With an exceptional cast, including future stars Jennifer Jason Leigh, Alexis Arquette and Sam Rockwell, and featuring an elegiac score by Mark Knopfler, this epic, hallucinatory journey is as bold and powerful a cinematic experience as it ever was.
