| What a delightful, heartwarming film!
I just stumbled across this little gem, despite having actually been in the Park Slope area where it was filmed during that period. Although made as a low budget independent, Lotto Land really has a soul, and Rubino serves up a solid story with real character development and believable performances. Casting, with mostly little-known actors, is dead-on, with even the smallest roles nailing it.

Despite the gritty neighborhood, drug dealing and R-rated content, this is [dare I say it] ultimately a feel-good film that pays off. The film had a limited run in art houses, and I caught it on video, but apparently it's now available on DVD, which you should definitely get in order to do justice to the great soundtrack from the Holmes Brothers.
