Trailer for Rio de Janeiro Crime Series 'Dom' Starring Gabriel Leone
"We've got to be pros or we'll get caught." Amazon has debuted an official trailer for a Brazilian crime series on Prime Video called simply just Dom, a reference to the title character's name. This looks like a modern day follow-up to City of God, about the struggle of growing up in Rio. Dom is an 8-episode series telling the story of Pedro, a handsome boy from Rio de Janeiro's middle class who is introduced to cocaine in his teen years, putting him on the path to becoming the leader of a criminal gang that dominated the tabloids in Rio in the early 2000s: Pedro Dom. It also follows his father Victor Dantas, who joined the police intelligence service as a teen. The journey of father and son living opposite lives, often mirroring and complementing each other, both in situations which blur the lines between right & wrong. Starring with Gabriel Leone & Flavio Tolezani are Filipe Bragança, Raquel Villar, Isabella Santoni, Ramon Francisco, Digão Ribeiro, Fabio Lago, Julia Konrad and André Mattos. With a score by Antonio Pinto. Worth a look.
