The King of Staten Island has finally arrived and is now available to watch with Theater at Home. The highly anticipated dramedy centers on Scott, played by Pete Davidson, who’s reached his mid-twenties without much to show for it. He spends most of his days hanging out with his childhood buddies, working a dead-end job and still living at home. But when his mother meets a new man after years of being alone, things at their house change rapidly and Scott is forced to make a lot of major changes so his own life can start moving forward too.
Check out our exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of The King of Staten Island with Judd Apatow:
The Talented Cast Keeps the Laughs Coming
There is no lack of hilarious talent in The King of Staten Island. Comedian Pete Davidson stars in and co-wrote the film, which is partially inspired by his life experiences. And Judd Apatow, whose previous work includes gems like Trainwreck, Funny People and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, co-wrote and directed the film. The cast also includes the hilarious Bill Burr and Marisa Tomei. So with all these years of combined comedic experience and talent, you’re sure to get all your laughs in and then some. But the film goes beyond that as it peels back the layers of jokes to reveal Scott’s internal struggles too.
The King’s Rise is as Difficult and Heartfelt as They Come
The King of Staten Island bring plenty of laughs, but it’s got some surprising heart too. Part of that is Scott’s relatability; he’s that friend we all had in high school who was always down for a great time and never took anything too seriously. And his endless dry wit and humor sure help too. But as we get to know Scott, we realize that he’s facing some real demons. Scott is still haunted by his father’s death, which has prevented him from creating a fulfilling life. Through the film he has to learn to overcome his crippling fears and cynicism, which is far from easy. These aren’t changes that will happen overnight. But that’s what draws us to Scott – he doesn’t have it all figured out and he makes tons of mistakes along the way. Just like we all do. So the film is more than just a good time with a bunch of funny people. It paints a realistic portrait of a multi-faceted, flawed guy who’s just like someone you know – maybe even yourself. And we can’t help but root for him to get back up every time he falls so he can rise to become the king of his castle.
