AroView: A prequel to the beloved crime series THE SOPRANOS about the iconic Italian-American mob boss Tony Soprano and his crime family.
Focuses on Tony Soprano as a juvenile delinquent teen during the Newark Gang Wars of New Jersey in 1967, and reveals the influence his family had on his development, especially his uncle Dickie Moltisanti (Alessandro Nivola). Tony himself is played by the late James Gandolfini’s son Michael, and original writers David Chase and Lawrence Konner return along with director Alan Taylor. An absolute treat for fans of perhaps the greatest TV series ever made.
“Saints can’t be what Sopranos was — without the time or the ones who’ve been lost to tell it, fuggedaboutit. But for a hundred-something minutes, it feels close enough to coming home again.” ~Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
“It’s a sharp, lively, and engrossing movie, one that provides a fascinating running commentary on how the world of “The Sopranos” came into being. Yet we can’t help but notice the difference in tone.” ~Owen Gleiberman, Variety
