Trivia

The jail scenes were filmed in a closed wing of The Barnstable County Corrections Facility in Barnstable, MA. There was so much mold on the set, the crew had to bleach the entire area to decrease the possibility of infection. See more »

Goofs

Near the beginning of the film, a pharmaceutical salesman is shown "detailing" a physician and lauding the merits of a new prescription drug known as "Oxy-Contin." This is completely in error. Oxy-Contin is a Schedule II narcotic which can only be handled by physicians and pharmacists who have a current "BNDD number." Salesmen, as shown in this scene are not entitled to have any of a Schedule II medication and federal law prohibits giving out samples of any scheduled drugs. See more »

Boston based drug dealing drama
17 December 2016 | by t-dooley-69-386916See all my reviews

In the late 1990s Boston's streets were hit by a new drug that was seen as the gateway 'drug of choice' to heroin – this was Oxy-Contin and was an opiate based pain killer. It was designed to be a sow release pill and so had to be taken whole. However, if you interfered with it you could break it down and turn it into a 'get away from it all' drug in a matter of minutes. Enter an Irish American mother who has her boys who are low level criminals, they soon realise what they are on to and set about taking over the streets in a very 'in your face way'.

As with all drug pushers there is going to be violence, there is going to be profanity, there is going to be sex and there will be heartache. This does all that in spades and a bit more besides. It is wearing its message on its sleeve but we sort of don't mind.

The acting is actually mostly very good with some, non fatal, exceptions. The one thing that is an issue is the poor sound quality throughout and that is a production flaw. That lends itself to presenting this as a cheap presentation, which it most certainly is not. It is opinionated, it does have a story to tell and it can be gritty in the violence sense that that particular word is used. However, it is entertaining for most of the right reasons and will keep your attention right up until the last – so on that basis I can recommend.
