Married to the Mob
Married to the Mob is a 1988 American comedy film directed by Jonathan Demme, starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Matthew Modine.
Michelle Pfeiffer, in something of a departure from her previous roles, gave an acclaimed lead performance as a gangster’s widow from Brooklyn, opposite Matthew Modine as the undercover FBI agent assigned the task of investigating her mafia connections.
As a slippery mob boss romantically pursuing Angela, Dean Stockwell was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
Angela de Marco (Michelle Pfeiffer) is the wife of mafia up-and-comer Frank “The Cucumber” de Marco (Alec Baldwin), who gets violently dispatched by Mob boss Tony “The Tiger” Russo (Dean Stockwell) when he is discovered in a compromising situation with the latter’s mistress Karen (Nancy Travis). Angela wants to escape the mafia scene with her son, but is harassed by Tony who puts the moves on her at Frank’s funeral. This clinch earns her the suspicion of FBI agents Mike Downey (Matthew Modine) and Ed Benitez (Oliver Platt), and also of Tony’s ball-busting wife Connie (Mercedes Ruehl), who repeatedly confronts Angela with accusations of stealing her husband.
