TORONTO, June 5, 2013 /CNW/ - The much anticipated worldwide premiere
screening of Real Gangsters this past weekend at the Hoboken
International Film Festival opened to a nearly sold out crowd and
Real Gangsters is a new-style, realistic mob film, starring: ROBERT
LOGGIA (Academy Award & Emmy nominee; Scarface, Independence Day, Big); STEVEN BAUER (Golden Globe nominee; Scarface, Raising Cain); JOHN SAVAGE (The Deer Hunter, Hair); MARGOT KIDDER (Superman movies, The Amityville Horror); NICK MANCUSO (Under Siege, Ticket to Heaven); MICHAEL PARÉ (Eddie and the Cruisers, Streets of Fire); ROBERT MANGIARDI (Death of a President); JOHNNY WILLIAMS (Goodfellas). This film also introduces FRANK D'ANGELO who not only created, wrote
and directed the film, but proved to be one of the many highlights of
the night. As he held an impromptu autograph session where he signed
autographs for adoring fans.
"Real Gangsters attracted one of the three largest crowds at Hoboken
International Film Festival this year--and there are nearly 150 movies
in the festival. Our 1,100 seat Paramount Theater was nearly sold out
for this screening. D'Angelo's storytelling and acting weren't his only
hit with HIFF audiences. His original music also garnered great
applause from the large festival audience," says Kenneth Del Vecchio,
Chairman, Hoboken International Film Festival.
Real Gangsters tells the story of the Lo Giacamo family, one of the most
successful crime syndicates in New York City. Run by cousins Vincent
and Jack Lo Giacamo, Real Gangsters shows how these two men maintain
control of their dangerous extended family and volatile business
ventures by very different means. Vincent is the politician, the man
who always has a plan to help keep the peace, find common ground, and
bind blood and commerce to grow the family into a billion dollar
empire. Jack is the muscle; the hot head, ruthless and uncompromising
he lives in the moment and executes his actions based on how he feels.
Unfortunately for these two men, these two philosophies don't always
"If you love mob movies, this is a must see film" says Frank D'Angelo,
"Real Gangsters is an adrenalin rush. A constant roller coaster ride of
classic crime, class acts, and the thrill that comes from living life
on the edge, one day at a time, when at any moment you may have to put
your life on the line to serve and protect the family".
Real Gangsters will hit the international film festival circuit this
year with the premiere Canadian screening at the Italian Contemporary
Film Festival in Toronto on June 30, 2013 - 9:00 pm at the TIFF Bell
Lightbox Theatre and the Action On Film Festival in Pasadena,
California August 16-20, 2013.
