Outside Providence (1999)

Film details


Comedy drama. Two young brothers find growing up in Rhode Island, USA in the 1970's pretty hard without a mother. Instead, their sometimes exasperated father has the job of bringing them up, and when one of the brothers, Tim, falls foul of the local police, he is sent to a preparatory school, where his background and goofy behaviour doesn't always impress some of the teachers.
