Movie Info

December 23, 1983: Just days before Christmas, the Oliverio family readies their Feast of the Seven Fishes, an Italian tradition stretching back to the old country of Calabria. Amidst the preparations, Tony Oliverio, a young man with big dreams and a bigger heart, wonders if he'll find love this Christmas season or spend it alone with his loud and loving family--Great Grandma Nonnie, Grandpa Johnny, Great Uncles Frankie and Carmine, his parents, his brother, and a host of friends. When Sarah, the girlfriend of his cousin Angelo, introduces Tony to Beth, it looks like Tony's holiday experience might take a turn for the better. That is unless Nonnie thinks Beth isn't good enough for her great-grandson, and Beth's Ivy League suitor doesn't steal her heart first. Come on inside, where it's warm, and the smells of cooking fish permeate the air, and let's have a visit.

Critic Reviews for Feast of the Seven Fishes

Surprises are in short supply here, but Tinnell's film is more concerned with cultivating a general, slightly tipsy air of good feeling. In this it largely succeeds...

Tinnell gets terrific performances up and down the cast: from the talented up-and-coming youngsters like Gisondo to veteran character actors like Joe Pantoliano, Paul Ben-Victor and Lynn Cohen.

As far as Christmas romance movies go, Feast of the Seven Fishes is quite watchable, funny in several spots and sweetly poignant in others.

If your parents or grandparents were immigrants to the United States, you're likely to recognize your family here, no matter what holiday you celebrate or what elaborate meals you cook to mark the occasion.

Buoyed by enjoyable performances by character actors like Paul Ben-Victor, the pic is slight but likeable, especially for fans of its younger leads.
