Writer/director John Turturro's down-and-dirty musical love story stars James Gandolfini (The Sopranos) as Nick, a New York ironworker married to Kitty (Susan Sarandon), a strong but gentle woman. A good man at heart, he is secretly carrying on a torrid affair with flame-haired Tula (Kate Winslet), but must find his way back to his family before he runs out of chances. Drawing on inspirations as diverse as Charles Bukowski and The Honeymooners, this romantic adventure features songs that are anthems of our time—from James Brown, Janis Joplin, Tom Jones, Bruce Springsteen, and more—which illuminate the characters' hopes and dreams. When pushed to their breaking points (and beyond), these conflicted characters break into song.
