I remember really enjoying LITTLE ODESSA. The film did get made, starring Tim Roth, Edward Furlong, Moira Kelly and Vanessa Redgrave. I remember being disappointed by it. Looked up the Ebert review, and he wonders if it was originally a family drama, with the crime parts grafted on to help it sell. Ouch.


Was LITTLE ODESSA really based on the Koenig book? From what I recall of that film the only connection was Brighton Beach.


Boston Teran is definitely someone, IMO. It would explain why he seems to be a camera-phobe.


1. The movie LITTLE ODESSA was not based on Koenig's book.
2. Koenig has never stopped writing.
3. Check out OSUD (strange name, huh? Means fate in Czech) VANTAGE PRESS,2004.
