Yesterday I had the pleasure of speaking with Robert Davi, the amazing actor who has been in EVERYTHING. We talked about politics and his movie, The Dukes, which has already won numerous awards at the Rome Film Festival, Monte Carlo Film Festival, among many others. In addition to playing the lead role (Danny DePasquale — no relation — HA!) Robert Davi wrote, produced and directed The Dukes. In the next few weeks I’ll have a column/review of the movie. Until then, check out the synopsis and preview here. The movie opens on November 14.
The Dukes,(Chazz Palminteri and Robert Davi) a Doo Wop group, were on top of the world at 17, now are struggling for survival in 2008. Their manager (Peter Bogdanovich) is desperately trying to get them work but is met with failure at every turn. Finally pushed to the extreme, they pull a heist only a fool would attempt, which leaves them even more desperate. When all seems lost, they find themselves. Underneath the laughter, “The Dukes” is a film that explores the intricacies of re-defining yourself; not only dealing with lost fame but applies to anyone whoever found themselves at the bottom of the mountain looking up where they once were; and how, in changing times, to hold onto your true self.
