Nancy McKeon gives a fine performance as Rosalie Bonanno wife of a Mafia big shot. The film tells the story of her stormy marriage to the son of a major organized crime boss. While it's no Godfather or Goodfellas film the story chiefly with her as the main character holds up well. She starts out as a Babe in the Woods who is truly in love with Bill Bonanno supposedly not knowing that she and he hail from powerful mob families.
The actual Mafia goings on are toned down so it's not full of mob hits and the usual escapades one might expect from a gangster picture. Her married life is depicted as she struggles to gain respectability through legitimate employment when her underworld husband is incarcerated and she must raise her children on her own. Ben Gazzara co-stars as the patriarch of the Bonanno family and Eric Roberts as Rosalies husband and heir apparent to the Bonanno family business.
