This gritty emotionally charged film is set amidst the abandoned beaches and faded glory of Coney Island, Brooklyn.

Requiem for a Dream is a hypnotic tale of four human beings each pursuing their vision of happiness. Even as everything begins to fall apart, they refuse to let go, plummeting with their dreams into a nightmarish gut-wrenching freefall.
