Performers, Cast and Crew:
Overworked executive Robert Micelli (Golden Globe nominee Joe Mantegna, Searching for Bobby Fischer) has little time for his loving wife (Academy Award nominee Anne Archer, Patriot Games), rebellious fourteen-year-old son, Bobby, (Trevor Morgan, Jurassic Park III) and twelve-year-old daughter, Gina (Gina Mantegna, 13 Going On 30), who desperately wants a dog. This disconnected family is transformed by long-lost Uncle Nino (Pierrino Mascarino, Tears of the Sun), an old world Italian who unexpectedly arrives on their doorstep for a visit. Nino's simple, old-fashioned ways make him a curiosity to the neighborhood, and an embarrassment to Robert. But, Nino is slowly able to connect with each member of the family, and teach Robert how to enjoy life's simple pleasures: good food, good music, and most important, La Famiglia! Uncle Nino is that rare family film whose simple story and gentle humor can be enjoyed by all ages. Bonus Feature: Interview with Joe Mantegna and his daughter, Gina Mantegna. Joe explores his Italian heritage and the importance of family. Joe and Gina also share their thoughts on this poignant film, and talk about working together for the first time.
