Celeste Heiter's Adventures in Asian Food & Film

Big Night

While watching an episode of Tony Bourdain’s No Reservations last week, one in which he visits Venice, there was a mention of one of my favorite films: Big Night starring Tony Shahloub and Stanley Tucci. And since my son Will had never seen it, he didn’t get the reference. So I decided to rent it from Netflix for us to watch this evening.

I’d forgotten what a delightfully well made film it is, and how much I had enjoyed it the first time I saw it. Not only did I have the same response the second time around, Will loved it too.
