Yampolsky knows his Atlantic City history. (A Boardwalk Story is)…a sweet, nostalgic ode to a lost time, to an Atlantic City of first crushes and summer jobs, to cool boardwalk breezes and hot sandy days, and to hardworking fathers, roguish pitchmen who double as philosopher kings, connected men who know the meaning of honor, and corner boys who talk with their fists and act without thinking. … An impressive debut.
