Filmmaker – and architect – Catherine Hardwicke reteamed with Toni Collette and flew to Italy’s wine country to make Mafia Mamma, a rom-com with mob hits. Colette plays an American housewife and mother who inherits a mafia empire when her grandfather dies. Completely unprepared for this sort of world, all she wants is to eat, pray and love in Italy but grudgingly takes the job. What She Said’ Anne Brodie spoke with Hardwicke about her astonishing change of pace.
Mafia Mamma is in theatres now.
