The film takes place during one night with actor Steven Prince telling stories, mainly from his adult life, to a small group of friends, including director Martin Scorsese and actor George Memmoli. The stories are intercut with home movies of Prince's childhood with an on-screen caption identifying the next story. See more »
Although the movie is simply a document of an interview with Stephen Prince, the film becomes so much more. Scorsese truly gives the viewer an in depth view into the man's life; mostly due to Prince's wonderful role as a story teller. Some of the tales he tells are fascinating, some silly, some so outlandish you have to doubt their sincerity. Extremely entertaining, and a prerequisite for any Tarantino fan -- see the film and you'll see what I mean.
