Stuart Little 2 (2002) as Key Grip (New York)
Two years have passed since we last visited the Little family and much has changed. Stuart has blossomed and settled nicely into his new life. He goes to school (in his very own car), is very handy when it comes to building model airplanes and is proud of the fact he made the soccer team. He loves having a big brother, George and new baby sister, Martha with whom he can play. Even Snowbell, the curmudgeonly cat with an attitude, has warmed up to Stuart in his own way. All is well in the Little world, but even so, Stuart yearns for a friend of his own--someone like him. Driving home from school, Stuart hears a loud squawk and suddenly an injured bird falls out of the sky, landing in the passenger seat of his car. When she regains consciousness, the mysterious bird introduces herself as Margalo. Frightened, she tells Stuart she is being threatened by Falcon, a feared crime lord who terrorizes all creatures living Manhattan. When Stuart learns the Margalo doesn't have a place to live he insists she stay with the Littles. Mr. and Mrs. Little immediately accept Margalo and, much to Snowbell's chagrin, welcome her to stay as long as she wants. It's obvious for all to see that Stuart has a crush on the charming and beguiling bird who promises him adventure... but Margalo is hiding a dark secret and is not what she appears to be. When she mysteriously vanishes, the unlikely duo of Stuart and Snowbell set out on long journey to find her unlock the mystery. The furry duo has no idea where they are headed--all Stuart knows is he has to find Falcon's lair and get Margalo back.

Church of the Holy Angels and its grammar school were the center of Hell's Kitchen in the 1960s--a place of refuge for many neighborhood kids from troubled homes. Father Bobby had his favorites--among them were Lorenzo and his pals, Michael, John, and Tommy. Because their blue-collar, hardworking parents were more often fighting than not, the four boys formed a kind of family of their own. Then, one boring summer day, a street prank gone dangerously awry resulted in the quartet being sent to the Wilkinson Home for Boys in upstate New York where they were tortured, abused and raped under the leadership of a sadistic guard named Sean Nokes. A decade and a half later, nothing can erase their painful memories, but the lessons of Hell's Kitchen allow them to even the score of the terrible hand that Fate had dealt them. In their shocking retaliation, they are daringly aided by Father Bobby and an aging, shadowy mob figure, both of whom have known the four boys since their childhoods.

And after an FBI rescue operation fails, he engineers a dangerous countermeasure in a last chance effort to bring his boy back to safety.
