After all the horrors and drama, the one genre we all love the most is comedy and thank god for the directors who continue making these movies every year. 2023 has a brilliant lineup of movies and series, but some of the movies are going to stand out and make us double down with laughter, and one of them is About My Father.
This upcoming American comedy movie will be written by Sebastian Maniscalco, and the movie is loosely based on Sebastian’s relationship with his father. There’s plenty to look forward to when it comes to About My Father, and we are here to tell you all about it.
About My Father will most definitely make you cry with laughter, but at the same time, it will help you understand the true meaning of family.
This movie is set to have some brilliant A-list actors and actresses who are bound to make this movie a blockbuster hit. Sebastian Maniscalco is one of the funniest and most well-known stand-up comedians in the world, so we have no doubt that his humor will most definitely translate on screen.
The trailer for About My Father was recently released, so we’re here to tell you everything you need to know about this movie, from the plot to the cast, and much more:
Nothing is more foreign than family. ABOUT MY FATHER – in theaters 5/26.— About My Father (@aboutmyfather) February 22, 2023
What Is The Plot of About My Father?
About My Father is all about family, and most importantly the relationship between a son and father after they are put in a different environment altogether. Before we dive into any plot details, let’s take a look at the official synopsis of About My Father to get a better idea of what we can expect from the movie:
“The film, About My Father, centers around Sebastian who is encouraged by his fiancée to bring his immigrant, hairdresser father, Salvo, to a weekend get-together with her super-rich and exceedingly eccentric family.
The weekend develops into what can only be described as a culture clash, leaving Sebastian and Salvo to discover that the great thing about family is everything about family.”
We recently saw a similar concept in the Netflix movie You People, which focussed more on race and love, but the cultural clash was an important part of that movie too. We are certain About My Father and You People are going to be very different from each other in many ways, but the crux might remain the same.
About My Father is going to see two families mingling with one another under unplanned circumstances, and considering how different they are from each other, they absolutely won’t hit it off, to begin with. Nevertheless, this weekend get-together will be one of a kind.
The main characters of About My Father are going to Sebastian and Salvo, the father-son duo who need to spend an entire weekend bonding with Sebastian’s fiancé’s family. Of late, culture clashes have become a great subplot for movies to explore in Hollywood, even though it has been around for a long time.
While this provides for some brilliant comedy, it also reflects on the diversification in the USA, and how slowly and steadily, people are becoming more tolerant towards one another. These are all going to be some of the underlying topics in About My Father, but the focus will remain on family and just how important that is.
About My Father is going to be a blockbuster hit for many reasons, and one of the main reasons is going to be the cast. So, keep reading this article because we will be talking about the cast members in the next section!
The Cast of About My Father
There is no way you can prepare yourself for the stellar cast that you are going to witness in About My Father. We’re going to start with the lead characters Sebastian and Salvo. This incredible duo will be played by Sebastian Maniscalco and Robert De Niro. Sebastian will essentially be playing himself in the movie, so that will be interesting to see since he is also one of the writers of the movie.
He truly does have a brilliant mind, and watching it translate on screen is always a whole lot of fun. And yes, Robert De Niro will be playing the role of his father, Salvo. De Niro needs no introduction but after all his serious roles in recent times, it will be great to see him in a pure comedy!
If you thought we were done with A-list actors and actresses, you thought wrong. Playing the role of Sebastian’s fiancé, we have Leslie Bibb, and her family members will be played by Anders Holm, David Rasche, Brett Dier, and Kim Cattrall.
While we are looking forward to seeing all of them in About My Father, Kim Cattrall definitely caught our attention. She has been back on our screen with How I Met Your Father and is clearly expanding her roles and making this much-needed comeback to Hollywood!
