Big Night (15) Sands: International Film Festival of St Andrews 2023 - Pay What You Can £20.00 / £18.00 / £16.00

Sands celebrates beginnings by showing an early film from a well-established film maker and we are delighted that they can join us in St Andrews to talk about their journey. Big Night was Stanley Tucci's co-writing, co-directing and starring debut.

His comedic flair and love of good food shine through his story of brothers who need to save their ailing restaurant business with a Big Night of incredible food.
Tucci wrote the screenplay with his cousin Joseph Tropiano and directed the film with friend Campbell Scott. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival where it was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize. Tucci and Tropiano won the Independent Spirit Award for Best First Screenplay for writing the screenplay of the film. A family affair, the film also featured his sister Christine and their mother, who wrote a cookbook for the film.

Dir: Campbell Scott + Stanley Tucci | 1996 | US | 15 | 1h 49m

Followed by Q&A with Stanley Tucci and Joe Russo
