Somewhere In Queens
Leo and Angela Russo live a simple, blue-collar life in Queens, surrounded by the big personalities of their overbearing Italian-American family. When their lanky, soft-spoken son finds success on his high-school basketball team and a chance at a life beyond what tradition expects, Leo throws his family into chaos to make it happen.
“Smart writing, unforced direction and a superb cast give the sentimental-but-not-gushy comic drama the messy specifics and narrative friction to lift it well beyond been-there-done-that.” ~Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter
“An affectionate love letter to the Italian American families who populate the eponymous borough that you don’t mind simply sharing the dinner table with them.” ~Michael Nordine, Variety
