Laws of Gravity
Directed by Nick Gomez
The acclaimed debut of filmmaker Nick Gomez (New Jersey Drive), Laws of Gravity is a gritty, unflinching and frighteningly real look at small-time Brooklyn hoods who live and die by different laws. Peter Greene (Pulp Fiction, The Mask) and Adam Trese (The Underneath) star as Jimmy and Jon, two petty crooks who find the opportunity for a big score when Frankie, an old friend and ex-con, arrives in town with a load of illegal handguns for sale. The guns are the source of tension for the friends and their families. When a domestic dispute lands Jon in jail, Jimmy goes to sell the guns to raise the bail. But when Frankie discovers that his merchandise is missing, he goes after Jimmy and the guns. One of the hardest-hitting independent films of the 1990s, Laws of Gravity co-stars Edie Falco (TV’s The Sopranos), Arabella Field (Naked in New York) and Paul Schulze (Drowning Mona).
