Brief Synopsis

Adapted from Richard Price''s novel, THE WANDERERS is a coming-of-age story about five members of an Italian-American street gang in the Bronx in 1963. A soundtrack of classic doo-wop establishes the time and place, but it''s a time that is about to change, and a place that is about to disappear. Set on the eve of the Kennedy assassination, the eponymous gang lives through a dizzying succession of racial, cultural and generational conflicts marking the end of an age of innocence, as the greaser paradigm of the 1950s encounters the first angry folk-rock notes of the 1960s.

    Strange and surreal spin on the teen genre, full of NY ethnic clash including Italian gangsters and a fogged in Irish Netherworld. MORE>
