QUICK TAKE:
Action-Comedy: An unassuming American woman discovers that she's inherited the role of mob boss in her family's Italian mafia organization.
PLOT:

Things are changing for pharma employee Kristin (TONI COLLETTE). Not only does she have to contend with her son, Domenick (TOMMY RODGER), heading off to college, but she's also learned that her husband, Paul (TIM DAISH), has been cheating on her. Kristen's friend, Jenny (SOPHIA NOMVETE), encourages her to sow her own wild oats, and Kristin gets that chance when she receives a call from Bianca (MONICA BELLUCCI) that her grandfather, Don Giuseppe Balbano (ALESSANDRO BRESSANELLO), has died and that she must travel to Italy as she's in the will.

Once there, she meets the hunky Lorenzo (GIULIO CORSO), but is whisked away to the Balbano estate by bodyguards Aldo (FRANCESCO MASTROIANNI) and Dante (ALFONSO PERUGINI). It's there that she learns that the family's wine business is just a front and that instead, they're a mafia organization and that she's now the boss, much to the resentment of her volatile cousin, Fabrizio (EDUARDO SCARPETTA). Not only that, but she must broker a deal with Carlo Romano (GIUSEPPE ZENO) whose mob family is at war with hers. As she reluctantly deals with all of that, Kristin eventually comes into her own.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?

WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For bloody violence, sexual content, and language.


I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
