Make the Wiseguys Weep follows the career of Jimmy Roselli, the Italian-American crooner destined to become the next Frank Sinatra, but who was nearly destroyed by his own erratic integrity, his refusal to compromise and his lifelong feud with Sinatra.
An unseen narrator looks back to 1956, on Staten Island, when Buddy, an Italian guy with big dreams, buys a house planning to live upstairs with his wife Estelle and run a bar downstairs. The first problem is Estelle's lack of confidence in Buddy. Then, Irish tenants upstairs refuse to move and won't pay rent; plus, the woman upstairs is about to have a baby. The next problem is the baby: once he's born, it's clear his father was Black. The Irish guy splits; Buddy evicts mother and child, then feels guilt and sets her up in a flat while she sorts out an adoption. Estelle's lack of faith, the Irish lass's spirit, Buddy's dream, racial prejudice, and the baby's fate play out. Written by

One of the BEST love stories I have ever seen. You will love the movie.
People who talk about love and not act on it or show what it can do in this world of war and ignorance should watch this movie and learn from it. It takes a lot of inner strength to change the world for good and love is the fuel power that drives us to that change. I wish all of us can find that great power to love one another and change the path of hate to the path of love. Great movie and BIG thanks to all who made this movie possible. I wish we can have more great love stories happening in this world. Buddy is the main character who makes everything come together and I want to say that he was great man and people like that are bigger then life. Watch THE MOVIE.
