The Family (2013)

Robert De Niro returns to his mafia roots in this film where he plays a former mob boss who enters witness protection to protect himself and his family from getting whacked.  Now they all must try to adapt to leading normal, average lives and this proves to be difficult.

Michelle Pfeiffer plays De Niro’s wife and Tommy Lee Jones is the man who put the family in witness protection.  The rest of the notable cast includes Dominic Chianese, Vincent Pastore, Dianna Agron, Joseph Perrino, and John D’leo.

The film is directed by Luc Besson and produced by Martin Scorsese.

The movie looks like an entertaining dysfunctional drama that could also be good for a few laughs.  It has a great cast and some of the best filmmakers in the business are a part of it.  That’s good enough for me to want to see.

The film is set to release on 9/13/13.
