A Poet Long Ago

 

Year: 2013
Country: USA
Run Time: 14 minutes

A POET LONG AGO stars Steve Schirripa as Sonny and Boris McGiver as Malloy. In the present day, Sonny, a sanitation worker, and Malloy, a journalist, meet by chance on the street and reminisce about their grammar school days back in 1970s Brooklyn. Immediately an old wound is opened; flashbacks reveal how the least likely of the pair had an astonishing gift for poetry that was beaten out of him by a narrow-minded father hell-bent on protecting him.
