After 20 years in federal prison, former Mafia capo Joe Scoleri (Paul Sorvino, GoodFellas)—aka “Big Joe”—is released and returns to the Queens neighborhood where once he was “a king made of steel.” Now he is old, his heart is failing, and the mob is nothing but small-time crooks and bullies. The world he knew has been transformed into another country. With a decent and well meaning next door neighbor Bobby (Michael Rapaport, TV’s Justified) as a guide and a loving daughter Rita (Renee Props, Get Shorty) as a consciousness-raiser, Big Joe is brought into the 21st century to accept the present and face the past. Sorvino and Rapaport work magic together, and a fine supporting cast gives the film an authentic feel for neighborhood and culture. Written and directed by David Rodriguez, LAST I HEARD shows that coming of age is not reserved for the young.

Paul Sorvino will be in attendance at the screening of Last I Heard on Friday, April 11, at 4:15PM at Enzian.
