The 1980s are back this Christmas in the first trailer for Feast of the Seven Fishes.
I was already interested when I saw 1983, but then when I saw Andrew Schulz I was sold. The man is one of the best comedians working today, and if Amy Schumer can get a Netflix special, Schulz should already have a dozen.
Beyond that, this looks like a charming Christmas movie that you would have play in the background during the festivities. I’m not familiar with the Italian tradition of the Feast of the Seven Fishes, but the film makes it out to be a fun time with the family.
December 23, 1983: Just days before Christmas, the Oliverio family readies their Feast of the Seven Fishes, an Italian tradition stretching back to the old country of Calabria. Amidst the preparations, Tony Oliverio, a young man with big dreams and a bigger heart, wonders if he’ll find love this Christmas season or spend it alone with his loud and loving family – Great Grandma Nonnie, Grandpa Johnny, Great Uncles Frankie and Carmine, his parents, his brother, and a host of friends. When Sarah, the girlfriend of his best friend Angelo, introduces Tony to Beth, it looks like Tony’s holiday experience might take a turn for the better. That is unless Nonnie thinks Beth isn’t good enough for her great-grandson, and Beth’s Ivy League suitor doesn’t steal her heart first. Come on inside, where it’s warm, and the smells of cooking fish permeate the air, and let’s have a visit.
Feast of the Seven Fishes hits theaters and On Demand November 15, 2019.
