    The King of Staten Island’s plot synopsis:  “Scott (Pete Davidson) has been a case of arrested development ever since his firefighter father died when he was seven. He’s now reached his mid-20s having achieved little, chasing a dream of becoming a tattoo artist that seems far out of reach. As his ambitious younger sister (Maude Apatow) heads off to college, Scott is still living with his exhausted ER nurse mother (Oscar-winner Marisa Tomei) and spends his days smoking weed, hanging with the guys — Oscar (Ricky Velez), Igor (Moises Arias) and Richie (Lou Wilson) — and secretly hooking up with his childhood friend Kelsey (Bel Powley).

    But when his mother starts dating a loudmouth firefighter named Ray (Bill Burr) it sets off a chain of events that will force Scott to grapple with his grief and take his first tentative steps toward moving forward in life.

    The film also stars (Steve Buscemi) as Papa, a veteran firefighter who takes Scott under his wing, and Pamela Adlon as Ray’s ex-wife, Gina.”

Great Movie Review Podcast

FilmBookCast is a terrific podcast for anyone that likes to keep up with current movies. Mike and Mike talk all the new stuff, some of the old stuff, and everything in between. These guys know their movie history and even if their opinions are a little out there sometimes, they always back up their thoughts carefully. Plus, they’re both just funny as hell. Must listen for any movie fan.
