Angela Scacciapensieri

Originally intended for Madonna (who can't act & would have definitely STUNK!), this was an excellent role for Geena Davis. "Angie" is a film about an Italian/American woman from the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn, N.Y. Her mom left her when she was a child & because of this she has a romanticized notion of her mother & a deep fear of abandonment. She wants more out of life than her working class plumber boyfriend (and father of her child) can offer her so she falls in love with a lawyer from Ireland while pregnant(someone as far removed from her Brooklyn world as possible!) After the baby is born, the lawyer dumps her & she also feels rejected by her son (you'll have to see the movie to find out why) so she heads off to Texas to finally face her mom for some type of closure. Yes, this character's angst & situations can be overwhelming , but real life can be like that too sometimes. The musical score, by Jerry Goldsmith, is excellent (particularly "Angie's Theme") & compliments the movie wonderfully. The movie also has a knack for capturing the New York Italian/American experience authentically. At times, "Angie" feels like a hybrid of other films ("Working Girl", "Beaches", "Saturday Night Fever", "Moonstruck" & "Pretty Woman") but it works. (This film is based on the novel "Angie, I Says" by Avra Wing. In the book the main character's name is Tina Scacciapensiari & her best friend's name is Angie. The first names of these characters were switched for the film).

A film about an Italian families struggles in Brooklyn New York that works

This is a nice drama set in Brooklyn New York in the 1990's starring Geena Davis as Angie Scacciapensieri. The film opens up in the early 1970's on the neighborhood streets of Brooklyn New York where a bunch of pre-teen girls are playing their 45 records on the front porch and teasing little Angie about how they know that her wacko mom was caught dancing in the snow in nothing but her underwear and how she disappeared out of Angie's life when she was just 3 years old. All Angie has to remember her mommy is a picture she treasures of the two of them. Angie's best friend Tina (played by Aida Turturro) protects Angie from the girl bullies and then the film fast forwards to the 1990's where the two (now) ladies are still best friends working in an office.

Tina is now married to the foul mouthed Jerry (played by Michael Rispoli) and they have two children. Angie is in a relationship with Vinnie (played by the late James Gandolfini) who owns his own plumbing business. Besides the three of the four actors being later connected with the 1999 television crime drama series The Sopranos, the friends and lovers all have an Italian background and stick to their own Brooklyn neighborhood. Angie discovers she is pregnant and when she tells her boyfriend Vinnie he is ecstatic and proposes marriage. This is a life changing drama in an Italian Brooklyn neighborhood not just for Angie, but also for her friends and family. One day Angie is a single lady working in a New York office and the next day she finds herself pregnant and engaged to be married to Vinnie. This is a trigger point for Angie and it brings up feelings deep inside of her that lead her to resent her own father Frank (played by Philip Bosco) and her stepmother Kathy (played by Jenny O'Hara) who raised Angie after her own mother abruptly left her at the age of three (3). Angie proceeds to push her father, stepmother, fiancée Vinnie and even her best friend Tina away. After bumping in to a stranger in a museum she starts an affair with this Irishman named Noel Riordan (played by Stephen Rea) and eventually she tells Noel that she is pregnant with her ex-fiancé's child. Noel takes it all in stride and continues his relationship with Angie throughout her nine month pregnancy.

I don't want to provide a spoiler alert so I will just say that the last 30 minutes of the film is where Angie finds out to what extent her family and friends will really go to for one another. This support group gives her the inner strength to make the decisions that we all think we would also make if we found ourselves in the same circumstances. This is a good drama for Geena Davis to star in and she does a great job in the lead role as Angie. James Gandolfini's role as Vinnie the plumber (when he still had hair) shows that edgy side giving us an early peek in to his latter role as Tony Soprano that can just explode, as well as that kinder side of Tony Soprano who loves his family and will be there for them when he is needed regardless of the circumstances.

Aida Turturro, Michael Rispoli, Stephen Rea, Philip Bosco and Jenny O'Hara all add depth of their respective characters to this warm and loving film Angie and all of these characters make us feel as if we are involved in their scenes. It will make you want to provide your own two cents to Angie on what she should do. One of the qualities I look for when writing a film review is if the film can keep my attention, or does the film have intermittent scenes that allow the mind to wander? Angie kept me enthralled from the get go and it wasover before I knew it some 107 minutes later. Heck even the wife stayed awake for this late night movie drama and she rated it a 7 also! I rate the film a 7 out of 10. It is a nice piece of film depicting the 1990s' lifestyle in Brooklyn New York for an Italian family classic film genre.

Unbelievably muddled, but Geena is always worth a look...

Comedy-drama from talented if erratic director Martha Coolidge concerns a modern Italian-American working woman in Brooklyn, pregnant and unmarried, finding herself curious about the mother who abandoned her and her father years before. Begins brightly, with Geena Davis seemingly well-cast in the lead, but it quickly becomes mired in colorless sub-plots (including the woman's resentful best friend and her abusive husband, a schizophrenic mother, a needy stepmother, a malformed infant, and a married boyfriend!). By the midway point, Davis begins to struggle in her role, pushing her pivotal moments too hard and losing her innate likability. Worse, this scenario is far too neat and tidy--and when the actors aren't being overly 'cute', they're screaming senselessly at each other. Sadly, "Angie" bombs out. *1/2 from ****
