Storyline

A group of lifelong mob movie extras mount a production of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar in their local Staten Island theater in order to finally get some speaking roles. But the theater is the secret hideout of a real-life gangster who fancies himself an actor, and whom the FBI are hunting for the recent murder of a Broadway producer. The Feds insert their own undercover agent to audition for the role of Cassius, seeking to determine who is the real gangster among a cast of make-believe criminals. All the while, the oblivious cast seek only to prove to themselves, their families, and friends that they are more than just extras.

The Art Of Film At Its Best
14 October 2019 | by isantistaoSee all my reviews

This is the art of film making at its best. It is so creative it is amazing. And the irony of it is perfect. It is such a great movie, I am so glad I found it. It is such a hidden gem. I hope more people get exposed to it because it was just great. So much fun to watch.
