Product Description:

Three friends enter the gangster life as the '90s look more and more like the roaring '20s in this drama of vice and violence.

Description by Warner Home Video:

Called "fresh and powerful" by the New York Post, Amongst Friends is a fascinating and haunting portrait of friendship bound by money, power and greed.
Acclaimed director Rob Weiss delivers a powerhouse film in this action-packed, critically acclaimed portrayal of three young friends inducted into the fast lane of criminal life.
Billy, Trevor and Andy are three friends from a wealthy suburb who have everything they've ever wanted, except respect. When they discover the "small-time hustle" and the respect it commands on the street, they soon realize the games they once played as friends now have deadly consequences...and the price of success is betrayal.

Plot Synopsis:

The immaculate lawns and tree-lined streets of Five Towns in Long Island, New York are the setting for a new crop of Jewish gangsters. Three childhood friends forgo the privileges of their class in favor of the excitement of drugs and murder. Trevor returns home from prison after serving as a fall guy in a bust and rejoins his friends, weak-willed Andy and thrillseeker Billy. Under the guiding hand of an aging mobster, the would-be wiseguys betray one another to tragic ends.
