Writer Nick and his wife Emily are expecting their first child. When a necessary home repair proves too costly to afford, Nick must swallow his pride and visit his father, a proud immigrant stonemason with whom he has a difficult relationship, and ask him to do the work. Confronting the issues of religion and family tradition which have separated father and son causes Nick and Emily to reevaluate their lives and the things they value most.Written by
This movie is a sleeper. Coming at a time when "homey" [not in the modern gangbanger sense of the term] was in vogue. A pregnant woman wants an addition to her house for the new baby and gets her father-in-law, the great opera singer, Salvatore Baccaloni, a carpenter with old fashioned Italian family values, to do the work, over her husband's (Richard Conte)reservations. Holliday was at her peak after her brush with the McCarthy witch hunters and gives a great performance in this display of cross-cultural and cross-ethnic clashes of values. A fun, entertaining movie. See it. Enjoy. Feel good for a change.
