  • Summary: Taking its name from the New York neighborhood sometimes known as "Little Athens," this is a tale -- sometimes comic, sometimes tragic -- about a little corner of New York and its colorful characters. It's a story about love, about family, about discovering one's heritage, about passion, and about the power to dream. (Marevan Pictures) Expand

  1. In retelling this timeworn story of conflict between young men in the New World and their stubborn Old World fathers, Mr. Efteriades may not have generated many sparks, but with his affection for Astoria and its people he has given his tale a warm glow.
  2. 50
    Heartfelt but overly familiar film.
  3. Fels like an awkward student film.
  4. 25
    Rates an "E" for effort -- and a "B" for boring.

    A muted coming-of-age piece that more often reflects rusty movie conventions than it freshly observes real-life struggles.

    It's about following your dreams, no matter what your parents think. Socrates motions for hemlock.
