A gritty new crime drama, set right here on the Jersey Shore, is set to kickoff at the 2013 Garden State Film Festival and we've got an exclusive first look at some still shots from the production.

'West End' tells the story of a man born into a crime family who leaves home only to return when his father is murdered. Things have changed drastically in his sleepy Shore community and leaves him with questions to answer.

The movie was written and directed by native New Jerseyean Joe Basile and stars Neal Bledsoe, Peter Onorati and Eric Roberts.

'West End' will be shown on Saturday, April 6 at 10:30 p.m. in the Paramount Theatre, 1300 Ocean Avenue in Asbury Park as part of the Garden State Film Festival.
