New Directions


  • Description
  • A young man returns home to his South Boston roots after being

    away from his family for three years. Although he has gotten his

    life back together, he finds it hard to come back to the

    temptations that forced him to leave in the first place. Donnie

    Wahlberg, Rose McGowan, Anne Meara and Lawrence Tierney

    make up a cast that deliver an acting punch not seen in many of

    today's dramatic features. And a tip of the hat to John Shea's

    experience as an actor in giving his direction the added emotion

    which makes Southie a film to see on the big screen.
