SPOTLIGHT

THE WANNABE

Directed by Nick Sandow
FEATURE NARRATIVE 91 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE THE WANNABE
In this moody crime drama based on actual events that occurred in 1992, Gotti-obsessed Thomas (Boardwalk Empire’s Vincent Piazza) falls in love with Rose (Academy Award®-winner Patricia Arquette) and the two chase illusions of grandeur as they embark on a drug-infused crime spree. Arquette and Piazza offer emotionally powerful performances set against the backdrop of addiction and greed. Nick Sandow (Orange is the New Black) and executive producer Martin Scorsese take a truly fresh approach to the classic genre. This moving film tells the iconic mob story from a new perspective: an outlier’s point-of-view, with an unquenchable desire to live the cinematic fantasy of the mob lifestyle. The Wannabe is a stunning look at the pursuit of power.
