Believe this movie was a great depiction of the "last mafia marriage"
The movie is easy to watch, Nancy McKeon does a great job of portraying Rosalie Bonanno, and how she begins as a naive young girl, to an extremely strong and independent woman. I've seen this movie numerous times and even read both Bill and Rosalie's books, this movie is a great depiction, though tamed down some, of "the last mafia marriage". I actually wish the movie had gone back in time, to when Bill and Rosalie met and continued from there. But, the way the story is told, narrated by Nancy McKeon, makes it very easy to follow and you're constantly wondering what will happen to them next. The characters were well casted, making it seem real and the time frame is well shown. What truly makes this movie worth watching, especially if you're a mafia junkie like myself, is Nancy McKeon's performance. Many movies have been made about mafia wives, but this story, with Nancy carrying the ball, is definitely the most well told and believable, because it's told from the wife's point of view, not the mobsters'. Therefore, I highly suggest if you haven't watched this movie and are either a fan of Nancy McKeon or just of good mafia films, to catch this one whenever it's on. You won't be able to turn the channel, trust me.
