Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Good Night, Michelangelo is not, as one might expect, the story of the love life of the famed renaissance genius. The "Michelangelo" of the title is an 8-year-old boy, the youngest member of an early 20th century Italian immigrant family. Through his eyes, we see the assimilation of the rest of his family-and three other broods--into a strange and sometimes hostile environment. Top billing is bestowed upon British actress Kim Cattrall, the film's one "name" performer. Financed in Italy, the amiable, somewhat off-kilter Good Night, Michelangelo was filmed on location in the US.
