Vincent Piazza and Patricia Arquette in The Wannabe

Obsessed with mob culture and desperate to fit in, Thomas, the title character of The Wannabe, sets out to fix the 1992 trial of mob boss John Gotti. Thomas believes if his plan is executed, it will put him at the center of all that he idolizes. But the plot is foiled, setting off events worthy of mob lore. The Wannabe intertwines real people and true events, past and present, and fantasy – and features Patricia Arquette, in a magnificent performance that many believe tops her Oscar-winning performance in Boyhood.
Special Guests: Director Nick Sandow (who portrays Joe Caputo in Orange Is the New Black), Producer Michael Gasparro. Southeast Premiere. Sunday, November 22, 6:00pm, Cinema Paradiso – Fort Lauderdale and Cinema Paradiso – Hollywood

Suffragette Trailer

SUFFRAGETTE is a powerful drama about the women who were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality in early-20th-century Britain. The stirring story centers on Maud (played by Carey Mulligan), a working wife and mother whose life is forever changed when she is secretly recruited to join the U.K.’s growing suffragette movement. Galvanized by the outlaw fugitive Emmeline Pankhurst (Meryl Streep), Maud becomes an activist for the cause alongside women from all walks of life. Inspired by true events,  SUFFRAGETTE  is a moving drama exploring the passion and heartbreak of those who risked all they had for women’s right to vote – their jobs, their homes, their children, and even their lives.
