I had the great opportunity to see this film in Skokie, IL
7 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

I had the great opportunity to see this film with the friends and family of Duke Doyle last night. I really enjoyed viewing this film. It was so refreshing to see a film address the values of forgiveness and compromise in the modern American family. The film uses the universal language of music in brilliant fashion to bridge the gap between both culture and different generations. Joe Mantegna and Anne Archer are wonderful together as the heads of the Micelli family and Pierrino Mascarino will make you wish you had an "Uncle Nino".

It was great seeing both Trevor and Daniel in person at our showing. Continued success to this group of talented young actors!

Let's hope more of America gets to see "Uncle Nino"! BRAVO!
