A Wake in Providence 1999 94 R 3.0 out of 5 ducks
Anthony is an Italian to-be actor who's just gotten a break; he takes his girlfriend Alissa from Los Angeles to Providence, Rhode Island after his grandfather dies. As he begins to go around to visit the family, they aren't too bothered by Alissa being black -- but that is in no small part due to Anthony failing to introduce her as his girlfriend. Once he does, they flip out just before the wake dinner (the night before the funeral and burial). Anthony's brother Frankie announces he's ashamed of the family that can't accept her, and outs himself as enjoying wearing womens' underwear (showing off his pearly red bra in the process). Anthony, Alissa and Frankie leave the house, but go in separate directions. Anthony's mom comes around to accepting Alissa, in no small part to remembering how the family's matriarch (her mom) doesn't accept much of anyone, and the two women bond. Frankie and Anthony go in separate directions, but bump into one another at the bar. The two men go back to the family's market, where Frankie talks Anthony into trying on the underwear, and both agree is comfortable; they pass out drinking. In the morning, everyone slowly converges for the funeral, except the two brothers. The two dim-wit cousins come to find them at the market, are startled seeing them in the underwear. They arrive, get through the funeral where Anthony speaks of grandpa accepting everyone (ominous note to grandma), and at the cemetery, the two brothers, thinking the mob is after them (foolishly) fall into the grave. Grandma tells Anthony to bring Alissa around at Christmas, signaling she's welcomed into the family. Moving film reel
