In Robert De Niro's stunning directorial debut, a devoted father battles a local crime boss for the life of his son. Growing up on the racially divided mean streets of 1960s New York, 11-year-old Italian-American Calogero idolizes sophisticated local mob boss Sonny (Chazz Palminteri), despite stern warnings from his working-class father (Robert De Niro). When Calogero gets older and defies his dad in order to join Sonny's dangerous gang, he finds that life is never black and white. Funny, touching and explosively honest, A Bronx Tale is a provocative coming-of-age story you won't soon forget.
