When Simon’s brother is arrested for armed robbery, he is asked to commit a string of similar crimes in an attempt to get his brother acquitted. Caught between loyalty to his brother and his own will, Simon is forced to examine his life. Entrenched in a grim reality, this movie weighs the options of an event that becomes just as disturbing for us as its main character.
“Channeling the early work of Martin Scorsese, it’s this introspection-the pit between crime and morality-that makes BOOSTER so pertinent.” – Paste Magazine
“Booster is a riveting contemplative drama” – Scorecardreview
“A great film… a different and more genuine take on the [crime] genre, and the ending will surprise.” – Lost in Reviews
