God’s Pocket

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

In a final performance from Philip Seymour Hoffman, also starring John Turturro, GOD’S POCKET is set in the gritty, blue-collar neighborhood that gives the film its name. Mickey Scarpato’s crazy stepson, Leon, is killed in a construction “accident,” and Mickey quickly tries to bury the bad news with the body. But when a local columnist comes sniffing around for the truth, things go from bad to worse. Mickey finds himself stuck in a life-and-death struggle compounded by a body he can’t bury, a wife he can’t please, and a debt he can’t pay. Unrated. 89 Min.
