Big Night

That’s a tasty movie!

A saucy mix of comedy, familial fighting, and decadent food, this elegant treat came roaring out of Sundance, perfect to cleanse the palate after too many action flicks.

Centering on a pair of Italian brothers, living, working (and sparring with each other) in ’50s New Jersey, it was co-directed by Stanley Tucci and Campbell Scott.

Tucci is the front of the house at his family’s restaurant, while Tony Shalhoub, pre-Monk, rules the kitchen with a fiery intensity.

Sparks fly as the duo clash, but even in their fiercest fights, love rules in a touching tale.
