Back in the Day (Blu-ray)
Directed by Paul Borghese
Set in both the late 80's and current day, "Back in the Day" is a gritty tale about Anthony Rodriguez (William DeMeo), an Italian/Puerto Rican teenager growing up on the streets of Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, then a racist neighborhood filled with bullies, big shots and social clubs where all of the neighborhood shots were called. In spite of the odds, Anthony struggles to uphold the morals his nurturing, hard-working mother taught him and retain his dignity. When he's taken under the wing of a local mob boss (Michael Madsen), he unites Anthony with a trainer, Eddie “Rocks” Trevor (Danny Glover), who turns Anthony into a boxing contender. Love and loss, humiliation and retaliation all play major roles in Anthony's path to success, but before he can make it to the top, he must realize that the real fight is outside the ring.
