This movie, small though it is, is brilliant. It has real heart and a genuine love for its subject. I knew none of the actors in On Broadway but they all turned in wonderfully "real" performances. All through the film I found myself willing the main character Jack to succeed in his desire to write, stage and direct his first play inspired by his beloved uncle's death, in spite of fierce opposition from his father. The relationships between the characters whether familial or romantic are portrayed in a really authentic way and are totally believable. I want to see anything else written or directed by its author/director as he has a fantastic talent which should be encouraged and nurtured. Its on Sky TV in |uk at the moment so try to catch it if you can.
