Director Sean Baker and Academy Award nominee Lee Daniels (“Precious”) will be at SoHo’s Apple Store this Thursday to discuss Baker’s film, “Prince of Broadway,” which opens this Friday, September 3. indieWIRE‘s lead film critic Eric Kohn will moderate the discussion, part of iW and Apple’s ‘Meet the Filmmaker’ series. The talk back is slated for 6pm. Free seating on a first come, first served basis.
Official synopsis of the film:
‘”Prince of Broadway is the story of Lucky, a charismatic hustler eking out a living in the underbelly of New York’s wholesale fashion district. An illegal immigrant from Ghana, Lucky makes ends meet by soliciting shoppers on the street with knock-off brand merchandise. Life is good for Lucky, but his dreams are suddenly upended when a child is thrust into his world by a woman who insists the toddler is his son. A tender comedy of fatherhood, family and love set in the shadow of the Flatiron building and soaked in the colorful bustle of urban realism, Prince of Broadway reveals unseen lives creating their own knock-off of the American Dream.’
