Vanessa Parise's "Kiss The Bride" will open the Gen Art film festival, Wednesday, April 2, 7:30pm. Gen Art Film Festival is an event known for its signature "seven films and seven parties on seven nights" formula, which will run April 2-8 in Manhattan.
Parise's "Kiss" stars Alyssa Milano, who plays Amy Kayne, a lesbian lover to Monet Mazur's character Toni, an aspiring musician. Also starring Jonathon Schaech, Amanda Detmer, Sean Patrick Flanery, Brook Langton, Vanessa Parise, Talia Shire, and Burt Young. It is an insightful and humorous look into the lives of a passionate but disparate Italian-American family and their individual struggles for love and validation. Three radically different sisters, from an Italian-American family, return home to Rhode Island for the wedding of their traditional sister, Danni. Eldest of the four daughters Niki returns from L.A. where
her aspirations of stardom have landed her on a Baywatch-style TV cop show. Chrissy, a top trader on Wall Street, is psychologically trapped in the shadow of her older sister. Baby of the bunch Toni is a rebel, singing punk songs in seedy bars with her girlfriend, whom she introduces to the family with in-your-face abandon upon arrival. Reunited, the girls’ insecurities and anxieties come to the fore, egged on by infantile jealousies and their father Santo’s seemingly universal disapproval. Think
of it as "My Big, Fat Italian Wedding" with an edge, says The Day (New London)
