The King of Staten Island
R | comedy | 2 HR 17 MIN | 2020
Pete Davidson delivers a “persuasively raw” (Observer) performance in this semiautobiographical comedy-drama. Scott Carlin (Davidson) is a 24-year-old dropout with a host of issues—not the least of which is that he lost his firefighter father on 9/11. When his mother (a superb Marisa Tomei) begins dating a fireman, the troubled Scott sets out to try to change his life.
