    • Interview with Nick Sandow & Vincent Piazza

    Synopsis


    The Wannabe
    Actor/filmmaker Nick Sandow wrote and directed this subversive mob flick, which is based on true events. Thomas (Vincent Piazza) is a Mafia-obsessed nobody in 1992 New York, and when his idol John Gotti goes on trial, he sees a chance to make his name. With the help of his new girlfriend, recovering drug addict Rose (Patricia Arquette), he tries to put pressure on a member of the jury and ensure a "Not Guilty" verdict for his hero. When he fails spectacularly, Thomas and Rose instead turn to robbing mob poker games for easy money. The Wannabe made its world premiere at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival. ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

      Film is based on a true storyThomas and Rose (VincentPiazza,Patricia Arquette) both social mist fits.There is no question there is a blurred line between their morals and mores. Rejection by the Gotti family of Maffia Crime Sends them into a drug induced rampage robbing local Mffia hangouts.Great film see it.

      Not surprised Martin Scorsese is 1 of the producers. Acting is good but story is predictable. Has some interest since the movie was based on a true couple. Wannabe tells it all.

      If you like the Piazza in Boardwalk Empire, you'll love him in this. Good Friday movie night material.
