9. Sleepers (1996)
‘Sleepers’ was a film that completely caught me off guard when I first saw it a couple of years back. The raw emotional power of the film swept me off as Barry Levinson tells a devastatingly powerful story of four friends whose lives take a bizarre turn when a street prank goes horribly wrong. As the boys end up in a juvenile prison as punishment, their lives are wrecked and they are forever changed, coming out as ferociously vengeance driven individuals with seething rage underneath their repressed desires and emotions. ‘Sleepers’ smartly deals with the themes of revenge, friendship, and loyalty with utmost respect and reverence.
