  • The New Year Parade

    2008. USA. Written and directed by Tom Quinn. With Greg Lyons, Jennifer-Lynn Welsh, Andrew Conway. Winner of the 2008 Slamdance Grand Jury Prize, Tom Quinn's intimate debut feature about a blue-collar Philadelphia family on the verge of collapse is so powerful and raw that you almost forget it's a work of fiction—a testament to Quinn's use of improvisation with non-professional actors, vérité-style filmmaking techniques, and location photography in the working-class neighborhoods of south Philadelphia. The film centers on two siblings who, witnessing the painful disintegration of their parents' marriage, struggle to build meaningful relationships with friends and lovers. 85 min.
