“One of my favorites, ‘Francis of Brooklyn,’ is about an Iraqi war vet who becomes a modern-day St. Francis with street bums and derelicts following him around. It’s fantastic but also very funny and very sad, as well.”

“Incredible film all around! Well acted, directed and executed. If you are lucky enough to find a screening in your town, don’t miss it! Truly an awesome and inspirational tale. Bravo! Bravo!!”

“Francis of Brooklyn is about an Iraq/ Afganistan war veteran who returns and has an apotheosis that forces him to the streets of New York, along with some of the many other veterans who are suffering from PTSD. But is it stress related? or is it a religious conversion? And what does it mean to the average person who wants to practice Christianity?”

“The screening of the full length feature “Francis of Brooklyn”, directed by Josh Wick, picked up an award for “Best Director-Feature” … The direction is truly commendable as you really tend to get are engaged with the characters and sites.”
