Movie Info

Filmed on the gritty streets ofChicago's south side, Stony Island tells the story of Richie Bloom (Richie Davis), the only white kid on the block, as he forms an R&B band with his best friend, Kevin (Edward "Stoney" Robinson). With the help of their mentor, aging sax legend Percy (Gene "Daddy G" Barge),they pull together a funky supergroup, stealing practice time atnight in the local funeral home. Despite few resources and heavy losses this resilient group of dedicated musicians--armed only with wit, sleight of hand and outrageous Chicago bravado--must come together to finally make their smash debut. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Stony Island

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2)

Stony Island is an easy-going, cheerful city movie about a bunch of kids who start a rock band -- and since the city is Chicago, there's a familiar feel.

Part of Stony's charm is its ambition. It's an emotional portrait of and commentary on the musician's lifestyle at the same time that it's a gritty musical which shifts moods cockily and assuredly.
