IBM - Let's build a smarter planet.
Presented by IBM
In Lyle Kessler’s play, two orphaned brothers (Ben Foster and Tom Sturridge) are living in a decrepit North Philadelphia row house. Treat, the eldest, supports his damaged younger sibling by petty thievery, and makes the house a virtual prison for the seemingly simple-minded Phillip. One night he kidnaps a rich older man; Harold (Alec Baldwin) turns out to have his own motives and becomes the father figure the boys have always yearned for.
