Little Gangster

The perfect father can intimidate people, drive super fast cars, and be a hit with the ladies. Rikkie Boskamp’s dad is not that. In fact, Rik’s dad is quite the opposite of all. But not anymore. Tired of being constantly bullied at school, Rik sees an opportunity for a new life when his dad “accepts” a promotion to a new town. While Dad’s out doing nerd things, Rik gets inspiration from a mob flick and decides it’s time he and his dad become the “Boskampi” family: Italian Mafiosos who are about to own this new town. Rik’s ruse really takes off as the whole town is making way for the Boskampi’s. But when their past catches up to them, it’s time for Rik to either face the music or swim with the fishes. LITTLE GANGSTER is the hilarious “local kid makes bad” mob film with swag we’ve all been waiting for. With nods to the original “Scarface,” James Dean, and pretty much every child’s perception of cool dudes, LITTLE GANGSTER will charm you and take your lunch money.
