Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

Though although oddly titled, this is a well-made and thoughtful drama, directed by Adam Leon with a seemingly hands-off naturalism, allowing good actors to tell a human story. It would be difficult to predict from its opening moments in a seedy New York City apartment -- where a mother and son run a little homemade horse-race gambling parlor -- that Tramps is headed for a hopeful rebirth for two twenty-somethings escaping lousy childhoods. The patient viewer will earn a payoff of redemption and sweetness at the end. Sticklers may note that the central heist involves switching two briefcases but after the initial foul-up, the switch is never mentioned again, signaling that that irrelevant device existed only to provide the mistake that sets the action in motion. Grace Van Patten at 20 possesses an admirable focus and inner strength, and looks a bit like Shailene Woodley. English actor Callum Turner unerringly portrays gawkiness and speaks in a perfect American accent, never mind convincing snippets of Polish spoken to his character's family.
