Filming in Brooklyn, NY
Homies follows Jesse, Marion, and Elliot, three friends living together in a studio apartment that is owned by Jesse’s maniac mother, Mrs. T. Jesse runs a broken-down bar on Flatbush Avenue that he inherited from his family, a long-line of rum runners and crooks. His best friend and roommate, Marion, is an aspiring-talk show host who, until he’s famous, works a plethora of odd jobs and records his own talk show on a camcorder. When Mrs. T raised the rent in the building without notice in order to pay her mortgage, Jesse and Marion were forced to find a third roommate to help cover costs. They wound up with Elliot. A normal looking guy with a shady past who keeps to himself and explains nothing. He could be a serial killer, but he seems cool enough, and pays on time.
