Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Don Close made his feature directorial debut with this drama about a trio of working-class Italian-Americans in Queens. The tale begins with childhood misadventures and then leaps ahead to show their adult lives two decades later -- with one unemployed (Andy Fiscella), another (Close) driving an ice cream truck, and the third (James Biberi) involved in criminal activities with a local don (Frank Vincent) that lead to violence. Shown at the 1997 Mill Valley Film Festival. This film is not to be confused with the other Made Men, a 1999 studio actioner starring James Belushi and Michael Beach and produced by the team of Joel Silver and Richard Donner.
