Storyline

Set in the Queens neighborhood known as "Little Athens", ASTORIA centers around a blue-collar Greek-American family and its struggle to hold on to the American Dream. It follows the journey of 28-year-old Alex and his desire to escape his stagnant neighborhood and pursue an off-beat dream that will take him to the lost tomb of Alexander the Great. Alex must overcome his Old World-minded father's plans - expanding the family business, a small corner eatery, and contending with some local wiseguys intent on collecting his dad's gambling debt. When Alex becomes enchanted with a beautiful iconographer, visiting from Greece, things take another turn... Written by Marevan Pictures <marevanpictures@aol.com>

Great Movie!!!
25 June 2003 | by (Hoboken, NJ) – See all my reviews

This movie was so sweet. My boyfriend is Greek and he loved it too! It was so nice to finally see an honest, moving and touching story about Greek people. I also saw My Big Fat Greek Wedding. It had some funny moments, sure, but I would be totally embarassed if my culture was represented that way. Astoria was so realistic and really gave a true and heartfelt portrayal of the Greek/Greek American experience. Being 1st generation Irish, I can totally relate to it. Hope it gets around to other theaters.
