Virgil Bliss ★★ 2001

Virgil (Jordan) is a mild-mannered career thief from Mississippi who's been paroled to a Brooklyn halfway house after 12 years in the joint. So what's the first thing he does? Well, he listens to his new roomie Manny (Gorman) who maybe wants Virgil to do another job and who introduces him to tough hooker/ junkie Ruby (Russell). Naturally, Virgil falls for her and there's more trouble a-coming. 94m/C VHS, DVD . Clint Jordan, Kirsten Russell, Anthony Gorman; D: Joe Maggio; W: Joe Maggio; C: Harlan Bosmajian.
