Description

    • Imported from USA.
    Modern day Boyz In The Hood in the Chicago neighborhood of Englewood. William Cochran s directing debut, Englewood boldly blends humor, romance, tragedy, and hope of three friends struggling to get through their last year of high school. Amid street violence, peer pressure, and family dysfunction these friends pull through. Dennis', (Cochran) antisocial behavior conceals his talents. His girlfriend Toya can see through his thug exterior, but her encouragement might not be enough. Review ------ Englewood isn't a flawless film. There are performances that are a tad hit-and-miss, while the film's pacing does on occasion miss a bit in a way that lessens a scene's dramatic impact. Yet for every slight misstep, Cochran bounces back with style, sincerity and complete and utter conviction. --The Independent Critic.com Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it, is a mantra, stressing the importance of a strong, supportive family in a child s development. It's an affirming position, but somewhat naïve. All the support, love and positivity in the world can t stop bullets from those who don t care. --Phil Morehart ~ Chicago Journal "Englewood - The Growing Pains In Chicago" is a movie that hopes to give viewers a positive understanding of what it's like to live and work in the south side neighborhood. This film is being shown as part of the 18th Black Harvest Film Festival at the Gene Siskel Film Center .

For several years, Chicago has experienced record violence in predominantly urban communities and numbers are increasing. Cochran's produced this film that spoke to the people in the community and create a conversation that creates change.
