Short Storyline: Patty's (Alyssa Milano) husband dies and she doesn't know how to support her family anymore. She meets a guy who is in the mob which she doesn't know at first. She needs money to support her family so she goes to work for him. Throughout the movie Patty learns more and more about the mob and the guy that she doesn't like until finally she tries to get out. Watch the movie to see if Patty can make it out of the mob...
Again I thought this was an excellent movie and the acting was amazing.
I figured since I already got the movie I may as well watch it. It turns out that overall it actually isn't that bad. I mean, Alyssa Milano is drop dead gorgeous and is the reason I got it in the first place. She actually is the leading woman in the movie and it isn't a case of her making a cameo and having her name and face plastered on the front cover in order to trick people into watching it like other movies do (not necessarily with Milano, but with any established actor or actress starring in a B-Movie).Read more ›
young woman must make; raised in modest surroundings, she becomes a
widowed mother at a young age and faced with making ends meet in the
inner city. Alyssa Milano plays that role, demonstrating charisma,
charm, a natural pride in her independence, yet able to face the
reality of taking another husband and taking past hardships in stride,
to deal with life the best as she can. In the meantime, she also
takes part in the underground economy (with cigarettes, etc)
hooking up with the character played both charismatically and
skillfully by Jason Gedrick, often portrayed in mob dramas.
Next there's the presence of legendary James Caan, who is credible as a
powerful underground figure; yet, in line with past movies, seems
to have trouble finding a bad bone in his body, while suggesting to
viewers that he's well versed in the underground economy (booze, go
go girls, card games, saloons, etc.) The script perhaps could have done
more in leeway to Caan, and more camera time, to develop his character
and improvize somewhat, but what left for viewers is adequate.
No doubt, the movie is skillfully edited, filmed, the narrative well
developed and is entertaining, with some depth in the relationship
laid out between the the characters of Milano and Gedrick, romantic
staying within the bounds of a mainstream audience.
Therefore, for the vigor seen in the actors, their youth and also
in the realism demonstrated, this is a must-see underground movie.
Alyssa Milano is pure brilliance in this film. Considering what she was given for material, Alyssa was able to breathe life and spirit into the character, and for that, this film is worth watching.
