A new restoration of Nancy Savoca's 1992 indie classic. Director of Photography Bobby Bukowski in attendance for a Q&A.
This chronicle of a spirited Italian-American New York family perfectly balances humor, tragedy, and pathos. Vincent D’Onofrio’s Joseph Santangelo is a butcher with a wicked sense of humor who “wins” his wife Catherine (a stellar Tracey Ullman) in a pinochle game. Over the protests of his mother, who talks to ghosts and makes deals with saints, Joseph marries Catherine. When the old lady dies, her spirit is channeled into her granddaughter Teresa (Lili Taylor) who overtakes the film with her yearning to serve God.
