  • Overview

    Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, BIG NIGHT presents two brothers who attempt to save a failing Italian restaurant in New Jersey in the 1950s.

    Roger Ebert wrote, “BIG NIGHT is one of the great food movies, and yet it is so much more. It is about food not as a subject but as a language--the language by which one can speak to gods, can create, can seduce, can aspire to perfection.”

    Lebanese-American actor Anthony Marcus Shalhoub is one of America’s great character actors. His awards include a Golden Globe for Best Actor, two Screen Actors Guild Awards and three Primetime Emmys.

    Shalhoub received a 2018 Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical as Tewfiq Zakaria in The Band’s Visit. His TV roles include Antonio Scarpacci in the NBC sitcom Wings and detective Adrian Monk in the USA TV series Monk. He currently plays Abe Weissman, the father of the title character, on Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
