The a film about two rival Italian restaurants, the popular 'Pascal's' with its Americanised Italian food and the authentic but struggling 'Paradise' run by two Italian immigrant brothers Primo and Secondo. Both establishments are based in New Jersey, and the film is set in the 1950s. The 'Big Night' is where Louis Prima (bandleader) is to come and eat at 'Paradise'. The success of the evening will make or break the brothers' restaurant and their dreams in America.
Directed by Campbell Scott and Stanley Tucci in 1996. Starring Minnie Driver, Ian Holm, Isabella Rossellini, Tony Shalhoub, Stanley Tucci, Allison Janney.
