Legendary writer and director Martin Scorsese's (TAXI DRIVER, GOODFELLAS) brilliant, semi- autobiographical movie that vividly depicts growing up on the streets of Little Italy in the seventies, is set for a UK theatrical re-release with a new print.
MEAN STREETS stars twice Academy AwardŽ- winning Robert De Niro (RAGING BULL, THE GOD-FATHER PART II) in the film that propelled him to international stardom, alongside fellow film icon Harvey Keitel (BUGSY, RESERVOIR DOGS, PULP FICTION). De Niro plays Johnny Boy Civello; a crazy, reckless, dysfunctional, small-time hood who sinks into deep financial trouble. Keitel is likeable wise guy Charlie Kappa, Johnny's best friend, who also happens to be in a covert relationship with Johnny's epileptic sister Teresa.
Charlie tries everything in his power to save his buddy from the loan sharks and Johnny's biggest danger - himself. But Charlie also needs to make a choice between his family and his girl... A brutal yet realistic look at street-life in Little Italy, MEAN STREETS is arguably one of the most influential films of the 1970's, complemented by exceptional acting, a powerful storyline, sublime cinematography, a cracking script and an electric soundtrack.
