Breaking Legs (2008)
Directed by Lynn Winik
The worlds of the Mafia and the theater clash hilariously when a professorial playwright seeks funding for his new play from the family of a former student. The “family” turn out to be minor Mafia godfathers who are willing to underwrite the play provided they never have to read it. The fact that the lusty, unwed daughter of the house falls in love with the playwright only furthers his involvement with the Mob. In this madcap situation, murder and menace are served up with plenty of pasta and laughter.
