Purportedly true story of the affair between singer Phyllis McGuire, and Mafia boss Sam Giancana, famous for his alleged connections to John F Kennedy and Frank Sinatra.Written by
Duncan Shine <Shine@Telecall.Co.Uk>
John Turturro and Mary-Louise Parker portray in fine fashion a mobster and his 60s pop-singer girlfriend. One can only speculate as to the factual accuracy of this insightful film about Sam Giancana and Phyllis McGuire. However, the film's repeated images of mobster brutality juxtaposed with a love story is chilling. This is a central theme in most mobster-genre movies, but it's not worn out here. "Sugartime" is one of the best of its genre.
