Michael Gandofini, the son of the original Tony Soprano (James Gandofini), portrays the teenage Tony, but the story belongs to Dickie Montisanti (Alessandro Nivola), who is in conflict with himself over the criminal life he’s chosen. The film is set in late 1960s/early 1970s Newark, New Jersey, in the middle of the worst race relations for a city at the time. The old ways are crumbling, and the Italian crime syndicates are feeling the heat from black mobsters … symbolized by Harold (Leslie Odom Jr). Dickie’s father (Ray Liotta) is causing his son some problems, and when a situation arises concerning father and son, Dickie turns to his father’s in-prison twin brother, Uncle Sal (also portrayed by Ray Liotta). In the background, Tony comes of age.

“The Many Saints of Newark” is in theaters and streaming on HBO Max on October 1st. Featuring Michael Gandofini, Alessandro Nivola, Corey Stoll, Vera Farmiga, Leslie Odom Jr., John Margaro and Ray Liotta. Written by David Chase and Lawrence Konner. Directed by Alan Taylor. Rated “R”
