Somewhere in Queens | Jacob Ward and Sadie Stanley Talk About Ray Romano’s Directorial Debut

Jacob Ward and Sadie Stanley in Somewhere in Queens

A father thinks he knows best for his son, but interfering in his relationship may have consequences in Somewhere in Queens.

Ray Romano stars and makes his directorial debut in this drama about an Italian family who supports a son entering college, possibly as a basketball star.

The film also stars Laurie Metcalf, Tony Lo Bianco, Sebastian Maniscalco, Jennifer Esposito, Jacob Ward, Sadie Stanley, Dierdre Friel, and Jon Manfrellotti. Romano wrote the story with Mark Stegemann.

Here is the official synopsis:

Leo Russo (Ray Romano) lives a simple life in Queens, New York with his wife Angela (Laurie Metcalf), their shy but talented son “Sticks” (Jacob Ward), and Leo’s close-knit network of Italian-American relatives and neighborhood friends. Happy enough working at the family construction business alongside his father (Tony Lo Bianco) and younger brother (Sebastian Maniscalco), Leo lives each week for Sticks’ high-school basketball games, never missing a chance to cheer on his only child as he rules the court as a star athlete. When the high school senior gets a surprising and life-changing opportunity to play basketball in college, Leo jumps at the chance to provide a plan for his future, away from the family construction business. But when sudden heartbreak threatens to derail Sticks, Leo goes to unexpected lengths to keep his son on his new path.
