This hard-hitting debut from Seth Zvi Rosenfeld features a star-studded cast (Rosie Perez, John Leguizamo, Michael Rapaport, Cathy Moriarty, and Marisa Tomei). After stabbing his brother's molester--and ending up in reform school for it--an East Harlem youth slides inexorably into a life of drug addiction, petty crime, and despair, while his brother becomes a decorated but still cowardly cop. A BROTHER'S KISS is a heartfelt debut for Rosenfeld, who expanded his own eponymous one-act play into a full theatrical feature.
