A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints opens in the UK from March 2 and had its London premiere on March 1.
The film is based upon the true story of director Dito Montiel. Dito grew up in Astoria, New York amongst friends who either end up dead, on drugs or in prison. He move to LA as soon as he could and carved a career as a writer. Several years later after having not been home for over ten years, Dito receives word that his father is ill. A trip home is called for as is a trip down memory lane as Dito believes that he has been saved from the same path as his friends thanks to his saints...
