More about Big Night

In this classic Italian-American film, restaurateur brothers, Primo (Tony Shalhoub) and Secondo (Stanley Tucci), are going broke serving authentic Italian cuisine to an unappreciative clientele in 1950’s New Jersey. They have one last chance to turn their fortunes around by making the meal of their lives!
