Folks in the mission already aren't happy that a bunch of hipsters and young techy folks with money have tried to take over their neighborhood. We wonder how they will respond to Hollywood taking over its streets and trying to tell its story?
Well we know from an inside source (a friend who worked on the set) that Peter Bratt, the brother of actor Benjamin Bratt, involved the locals of the Mission when he made his move "La Mission," which will open up the San Francisco Film Festival at the Castro Theater (was the Roxy booked?) on April 23.
The movie stars the former Mr. Julia Roberts (aka Benjamin Bratt) and it tells the story of a reformed convict and alcoholic who returns home while trying to turn his life around. A sudden revelation challenges the main character's relationship with his son and his reformed life.
The Bratt brothers are San Francisco and Mission natives and the movie was shot in the city.
