"Polish Bar" (March 19)
The gritty indie "Polish Bar" centers on Reuben ("Boardwalk Empire" star Vincent Piazza), a young, middle-class Jew, fed up with the family jewelry business. To shake things up, he looks for respect by trying to prove himself as a Hip Hop DJ and working for Polish criminals at the local strip club. Before he's had a chance to make a break for it, Reuben is brought back to reality by the return of Moises, his Orthodox cousin, who forces him to reexamine his values and beliefs.
