Earlier, we reported that About My Father will release on Friday. The film stars Robert De Niro and Sebastian Maniscalco. Ahead of the release, speaking about the working experience, Niro said, “I knew Sebastian, of course. Not well, but I have worked with him a little bit; had seen a couple of his shows, and worked on the ‘Irishman’ with him. So, we had a reading and then after that, I pretty much was like ‘let’s do it – just had to find the time and when to do it’.”
He further added that he admired Brando, James Dean, Montgomery Clift, and Matt. “I liked it, and saw that the script had a personal element from Sebastian’s experience, obviously. And, after getting to know Laura Terruso a little bit, I realised her background; she was from Brooklyn, Italian-American – they both (Sebastian and Laura) knew the world (from the movie standpoint), and they are from the world. This was important as far as how this was to be done, and whatever support I need, I got it from them – they know what they are doing, and that was an important part of it.”
The film is directed by Laura Terruso and written by Austen Earl and Sebastian Maniscalco. The story centers around the core theme that family is not one important thing, but it is everything.
