The Prince of Broadway uncovers the life of Lucky, an illegal immigrant from Ghana, trying to make ends meet by soliciting shoppers on the street with knock-off brand merchandise. Levon, an Armenian-Lebanese immigrant, operates an illegal storefront with a concealed back room where counterfeit goods are showcased to interested shoppers. Lucky's world is suddenly turned upside down when a child is thrust into his life by a woman who insists the toddler is his son. While Lucky copes with his new domestic dilemma, Levon struggles to save a marriage that is falling apart. The seedy side of the wholesale district is revealed through a journey that continually confronts the interplay between what is fake and what is real.

Hello !

My name is Leo Stern, I am writing to you from Elephant Eye Films, to inform you about the New York film premiere of The Prince of Broadway on September 3rd at the Angelika Theater. After our latest success with Precious and The Maid we are excited for the release of The Prince of Broadway, written and directed by Sean Baker, presented to you by Lee Daniels.

We were hoping you would be interested in supporting Elephant Eye with our grassroots promotion. Upon request we would be happy to send you a trailer and the media poster to post on your site or send out an email blast to your online community.

The Prince of Broadway uncovers the life of Lucky, an illegal immigrant from Ghana, trying to make ends meet by soliciting shoppers on the street with knock-off brand merchandise. Levon, an Armenian-Lebanese immigrant, operates an illegal storefront with a concealed back room where counterfeit goods are showcased to interested shoppers. Lucky's world is suddenly turned upside down when a child is thrust into his life by a woman who insists the toddler is his son. While Lucky copes with his new domestic dilemma, Levon struggles to save a marriage that is falling apart. The seedy side of the wholesale district is revealed through a journey that continually confronts the interplay between what is fake and what is real.

Set in the shadow of the Flatiron building and soaked in the colorful bustle of Broadway, the film is as much a brutal drama as it is a tender comedy. Shot in a fast-paced guerilla style that is akin to the hustler lifestyle, the film reveals the lives of immigrants in America seeking ideals of family and love, while creating their own knock-off of the American Dream.

Please let me know if you would like to be apart of our grassroots campaign and support us,

All the best
