‘About My Father’ Director Laura Terruso Talks with SCREEN; DeNiro, Maniscalco Lead Cast

The upcoming comedy About My Father unites actor-writer-comedian Sebastian Maniscalco with the great Robert DeNiro and an all-star supporting cast. The filmmaker in the director’s chair for this movie is Laura Terruso, whose recent directorial work includes the award-winning AppleTV+ series Dickinson.

Laura shares the details of her collaboration on set with Maniscalco and the acclaimed cast as she spoke on the red carpet of the Chicago Premiere with SCREEN’s Dan Patton…

In the comedy About My Father, Sebastian Maniscalco joins forces with legendary Italian-American and two-time Oscar® winner, Robert De Niro (Best Actor, Raging Bull, 1980). The film centers around Sebastian (Maniscalco) who is encouraged by his fiancée (Leslie Bibb) to bring his immigrant, hairdresser father, Salvo (De Niro), to a weekend get-together with her super-rich and exceedingly eccentric family (Kim Cattrall, Anders Holm, Brett Dier, David Rasche). The weekend develops into what can only be described as a culture clash, leaving Sebastian and Salvo to discover that the great thing about family is everything about family.

Here’s your first look at the comedy, which premieres in theaters on May 26th
