Not yet rated | write a review
Martin Scorsese's feature film debut is the story of J.R., a typical Italian boy who grows up in a comfortable middle class urban environment. But in that same environment he encounters the decisive split between tradition and faith, and the realities of modern life. Out of work, but not in need of cash, J.R. carouses with his buddies in the bars and social clubs of Little Italy. He draws a hard line between "the broads you bang" and the girls you go out with and marry -- nice girls, such as his girlfriend. But when she is raped, J.R. finds that he cannot "forgive" her for the crime, nor stop thinking of her as a "whore."

He draws a hard line between "the broads you bang" and the girls you go out with and marry -- nice girls, such as his girlfriend. But when she is raped, J.R. finds that he cannot "forgive" her for the crime, nor stop thinking of her as a "whore."
