Movie Info

Bloodbrothers, a slice-of-life study of the emotional upheavals of the Italian-American De Coco family in the Bronx, wears its heart on its blue-collar, with Tony Lo Bianco as the macho hard-hat father and Paul Sorvino as the florid Italian uncle. Richard Gere is the softy son of Lo Bianco who doesn't want to continue the family tradition of working as a construction laborer. Instead, he'd rather work in a hospital ward and take care of sick children. And as beer bottles smash against the sidewalk, women throw themselves at the sweaty he-men, and fights break out around the block, Gere must decide whether he's mender of buildings or children.more
