From Bay Ridge to big screen

Court clerk novelist's movie 'The Narrows' to open at Pavilion

NY Daily News, 6.16.09
By Jake Pearson

Tim McLoughlin uses bits and pieces of elevator chit-chat and hallway conversations he's picked up on the job in his successful crime fiction.

Now the 50-year-old Brooklyn Supreme Court clerk, who grew up in Bay Ridge, has turned his childhood memories and stories into a film that opens across the country on Friday.

"It's literally like an out-of-body experience, seeing these scenes that you thought of being acted out on the screen," said McLoughlin, who first told the film's coming-of-age tale in his novel, "Heart of the Old Country."

"The Narrows" stars another Bay Ridge native, "Law & Order's" Vincent D'Onofrio - but the two hadn't met before filming began.

I thought the cast interview at 'The Narrows' was supposed to be by text message? Poor Vincent will probably be completely jet-lagged anyway, after being in France for the premiere of 'Staten Island' the day before this happens, if I translated the article from the French edition of 'Premiere' correctly.

Really? France? When did you hear that?

I'd settle for it showing in MN!
