Great to see so many of the Sopranos cast appear on screen prior to the show’s premier (Lorraine Bracco, Michael Imperoli and Vincent Pastore) Such a great performance from young DiCaprio and Mark Wahlberg, not to mention Lorraine Bracco who was great also! This indie movie was delivered with such passion and should be shown to every teenager to spread awareness for the dangers of drugs. While things may seem fun in the beginning control is lost and then its almost impossible to get back up on the horse. Movie is very powerful to spread the political problems on how youths must be protected from drugs in society. Overall great film, very entertaining!
