In A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, a coming-of-age drama about writer/director Dito Montiel’s youth, the filmmakers capture the 1980s in the toughest neighborhood of Astoria, Queens. Dito (Robert Downey Jr.), called home after 15 years because his father is ill, encounters old friends — the ones he lost, the ones he left behind, the ones he can’t help but remember. These are Dito’s “saints.”
An honest account of a bittersweet return to a neighborhood where relationships can never be what they once were, Dito’s story is about coming to terms with a father’s rage and a father’s love. The special features of A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints (Limited Edition) include director and editor commentary, alternate opening and endings and a making-of documentary.
