Charlie Valentine is one of many movies that appeared at the Sunscreen Film Festival this past weekend. The movie is an attempt at really good character drama with mob themes using famous actors. While Valentine doesnt really hit on either note, it still makes for an interesting enough film.
The film stars Raymond Barry in the titular role of an aging gangster who is continuing his life as a thief. When a job goes bad, he is forced to do something he does all too well: cut and run. But when a similar situation arises after he meets up with his estranged son (NCIS star Michael Weatherly), the idea of cutting and running is a tough one.
