Parting Words

Parting Words is a timely blue-collar comedy with an unusual storyline, a lot of laughs and a lot of heart. Everyday folk who are “just trying to get by” form the cast and neighborhood setting for this film to which everyone can all too quickly relate. This story follows the dysfunctional relationship of Vince, Nick and Eddie, three 30-year old men and their childhood best friend, Laura. A little too good-looking and a lot too wild, an intoxicated Laura gets the pot boiling with a shocking toast at her friends’ wedding. The resulting emotional disaster takes the guys, their wives and their small town on a laughter-and-tears journey that dismantles, then reassembles each couple and takes them to a place far better than where they began.

Beautifully shot in HD24P, Parting Words is one of the pioneering digital-era features. Produced on location in Hoboken, New Jersey and the surrounding areas, the cast and crew were assembled from the local New York City talent pool.

Finally saw the movie on my DVR. Does the inside of the Character Social club look like that? No idea since I walk by all the time but the door is always closed


I saw them filming the “Nanny Diaries” when I used to live over on First and Hudson two years ago. Scarlett Johansson’s trailer was parked in front of my building. *drool* 😯 😳

[quote comment=”125067″]Just finished watching the movie, though missed the first half. I think a movie about the characters on this site might have been more interesting. Good effort, fine acting, and nicely shot, but a few too many close-ups, not enough of the ‘boken. Also, I think the screenplay could have used a little more zest. It dropped characters and plot lines for too long- maybe there were too many to manage in this screenplay. Anyway, may this be the first of more films set and shot in Hoboken![/quote]

Ever hear of “On the Waterfront?”
