Frank D’Angelo

is a colourful character known for his restaurant, tv show, film making & allegations of law breaking. He describes himself  as “the James Bond of the Canadian beverage world”  in his autobiography.  His films have all been made available on iTunes, & this trend seems set to continue.

Robert Loggia

appeared in An Officer & a Gentleman,  Scarface, Prizzi’s Honour, Big, Independence Day & Lost Highway.  He was also nominated for the Academy Award for best Supporting Actor for Jagged Edge (1985) & is known to tv viewers for his roles in Malcolm in the Middle & the Sopranos.  The dedication follows his passing in December 2015.

Cast

includes James Caan,  Martin Landau, Paul Sorvino,  Mira Sorvino, Armand Assante, Eric Roberts, Margot Kidder, Daniel Baldwin, Laurie Fortier, Doris Roberts, Marc Blucas, Frank D’Angelo, Ellen Dubin & the reason it’s here of course, Kris Kristofferson.  Landau is said to play an embittered chauffeur, but the other roles are not yet known.

Storyline

Very little is known about the plot, there is no synopsis as yet.  Judging by the trailer, the storyline centres around a man who loses his wife & daughter & copes by throwing everything he has into his job in law enforcement.  Time will tell whether this is accurate, or whether there is a twist in the link between the trailer to the actual film.

In Your Ear

has released mainly gangster/action movies as well as a film about vampires, albeit a Sicilian one –Sicilian Vampire.
