Review

‘Sorta Kinda True’ encapsulates the gritty essence of inner-city life. Keenan Gray’s short drama navigates the tangled webs of friendship, loyalty, and the harsh realities of urban existence, all against the vibrant backdrop of New York City. Aaron Zimmerman’s cinematography elevates the narrative, skillfully framing each scene to immerse the audience in the characters’ tumultuous journey.

Sam Ferlo, Pete Zipf, and Joey Leberer deliver standout performances, breathing life into their respective roles as the inseparable trio whose bond is tested by Joey’s descent into reckless behavior. Ferlo’s portrayal of Sam’s concern, Zipf’s internal conflict, and Leberer’s captivating portrayal of Joey’s unraveling psyche anchor the film with unexpected emotional depth.

The tension mounts as the friends confront Joey’s demons, culminating in a gripping showdown that underscores the consequences of their choices. The palpable camaraderie between the characters adds layers of complexity to the narrative, painting a poignant portrait of brotherhood and the harsh realities of growing up in the concrete jungle.

‘Sorta Kinda True’ is a relatable coming-of-age style tale that transcends clichés, offering a nuanced exploration of friendship, identity, and the allure of self-destruction. Gray’s adept direction, coupled with Zimmerman’s tidy cinematography, crafts a narrative that is both visually appealing and emotionally resonant.
