‘The Many Saints of Newark’ Gives Tony Soprano His Origin Story

BGN interviews the cast and director of the film The Many Saints of Newark.

Featured in the interviews are: Alessandro Nivola (Dickie Moltisanti), Michael Gandolfini (Tony Soprano), Leslie Odom Jr. (Harold McBrayer), Michela De Rossi (Giuseppina Bruno), Ray Liotta (Hollywood Dick), and Alan Taylor (Director).

Young Anthony Soprano is growing up in one of the most tumultuous eras in Newark’s history, becoming a man just as rival gangsters begin to rise up and challenge the all-powerful DiMeo crime family’s hold over the increasingly race-torn city. Caught up in the changing times is the uncle he idolizes, Dickie Moltisanti, who struggles to manage both his professional and personal responsibilities—and whose influence over his impressionable nephew will help make the teenager into the all-powerful mob boss we’ll later come to know: Tony Soprano.

Interviewer: Jeandra LeBeauf

The Many Saints of Newark premieres in theaters October 1st.
