A Prince in the Projects

An industrious boy living in Cabrini-Green is often assaulted by other kids, and his mother is determined to leave the housing project even if means moving out of state. When he finally makes a friend, a carriage driver who introduces him to the Magnificent Mile and things equestrian, the boy decides he wants to stay in Chicago. Writer-director Brigid Murphy, creator of Milly's Orchid Show, transforms the city into a place of wonder while providing a child's-eye view on matters such as gun violence and sexual bigotry. Dialogue that's more allusive than evasive and plotting that's more optimistic than unrealistic help create the fairy-tale tone of this featurette. With Raphael Chestang, David Cale, and Tanya White. 47 min.
