Martin Scorsese Presents...
Frank and maureen giorgio's once orderly lives have been thrown into chaos since the bank that loaned frank money for a restaurant addition to his lobster business has folded. With the threat of a public auction looming, the very proud and stubborn frank, his family and friends attempt to save the shop.

"The triumph here is the natural, fluid way the characters interact...  Jami Bernard, New York Daily News
"...genuinely engaging drama...  Joe Leydon, Variety
"The kind of smart, realistic indie family drama the movies should give us more often...  Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune

Editor's Note
Based on a true story, BROOKLYN LOBSTER centers on a single New York family as they struggle with a failing family business. When the bank threatens to foreclose on his small lobster shop, Frank Giorgio (Danny Aiello) does all he can to save it. A landmark in the community, Giorgio's Lobster Farm belonged to Frank's father before him. As Frank focuses solely on rescuing the business, his wife (Jane Curtin) has taken his inattention to heart and wants out of the marriage. In the midst of their problems, their son (Daniel Sauli) returns home for the holidays to find both the business and his parents' marriage in trouble. BROOKLYN LOBSTER offers an intimate look at how a family relates when the elements that define them begin to change. Like most family relationships, the Giorgios' interactions are marked by both humor and heartache, giving this film a feeling of realism.

Professional Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
Danny Aiello is an actor to depend on when you want a tough guy with a tender side, a sweet guy who can turn hard, and "Brooklyn Lobster" is a movie founded on his ability to show those two sides without seeming to shift gears...The movie, written and directed by Kevin Jordan, has a spontaneous, confident realism about it, and no wonder: It was inspired by his family's business, Jordan's Lobster Dock, in Brooklyn...People do goofy things in real life, including building a tent over their desk in the office, or, in this film, taking out that ad in the pets section. Watch Danny Aiello try to remain self-righteous as he defends the placement of that ad. "Brooklyn Lobster" is a sweet and touching film, worth a visit. - Roger Ebert

DVD Talk 8 of 10
It'd be easy to dismiss Kevin Jordan's Brooklyn Lobster as conventional, obvious and entirely predictable -- except for the fact that the charming little movie is also pretty warm, heartfelt and packed with strong performances. The story itself might be nothing new, but it's one that's delivered with an appreciable sense of sincerity and personality...it's a fairly familiar little story. But who says there's anything wrong with a story you've already heard before? Plus the quietly amusing little indie features some great work from character actor Danny Aiello and veteran comedienne Jane Curtin. The entire cast is surpisingly strong, but it's just cool to see two old pros getting a chance to work together in a simple "people story" like this one. - Scott Weinberg
