Kristin has to take over, per her grandfather’s wishes. Initially reluctant, the former “people-pleaser” housewife realizes that when not dodging assassination attempts, being a Mafia don has its upsides: A group that respects what she has to offer, a fantastic wardrobe, Bianca’s guardian angelship, and a break from endless Zoom calls. It’s a big leap for a woman who was too busy raising a family to ever find time to watch The Godfather. But as she becomes a MAFIA MAMMA, Kristin sees how the Balbano family — like herself — can go from old ways to new beginnings.
Acclaimed director CATHERINE HARDWICKE (Thirteen, Lords of Dogtown, Twilight, Red Riding Hood) makes MAFIA MAMMA a flavorful, funny, fish-out-of-water movie with action, comedy, romance, attitude, and heart, revolving around the remarkable talents of TONI COLLETTE and MONICA BELLUCCI.
