...Shocking resonance....[Nelson is] a wondrous young actor... -- Rating:B

Though well acted, and handsomely shot by veteran Adam Holender, Fresh sacrifices real emotion for thriller contrivances. It's a tourist's drive through inner-city hell. Full Review

...Powerful and moving....The acting by Esposito and Jackson is exceptional...

A hugely underrated crime drama, Fresh is worth discovering both for its air of authenticity and Sean Nelson's remarkable performance. Full Review
Apr 21, 2015
Rating: 3.5/4 -- The script by writer-director Boaz Yakin is fresh itself, marrying the physical violence of Fresh's world with the intellectual violence of competitive chess. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- The movie's two instincts are at complete odds with each other. Full Review

Glibly shocking, it would like you to think it deals with the hard realities of urban life, but in fact it uses its patina of social consciousness as a come-on for the most conventional kind of violent commercial filmmaking. Full Review

Product Description:

In this critically-acclaimed action drama a street-wise 12-year-old boy devises a dangerous plan to rid his neighborhood of its two competing drug dealers and save his sister. Using the type of thought he learned from playing chess with his father, the kid plays the thugs off one another, makes sacrifices when necessary, and wins the game. Winner of the Filmmaker's Trophy at the Sundance Film Festival.

Plot Synopsis:

There's only one thing making this inner-city delivery boy's job dangerous: the merchandise. 12-year-old Fresh is a drug courier whose morning deliveries make him late for school. Luckily, he's also got age on his side. Fresh is small enough not be noticed, smart enough to stay quiet and quick enough to avoid trouble, so he's sitting pretty. But life can still be rough for a little kid in the 'hood. When Fresh witnesses a murder, there's nothing he can do but keep his mouth shut, if he wants to stay alive.
