With every case of nepotism you have to be a bit trepidatious. Made in Italy may be the directorial debut for actor James D’Arcy, but the highlight of this movie is that it brings the father-son relationship of Liam Neeson and Micheal Richardson together for audiences to witness. The final result is nice. It’s everything one might expect, a story where a father and son have a fractured relationship, and they come together to hash out that dislocated past. One of the reasons why Made in Italy is slightly different is because we’re getting a more personal window to the stars of this film. Neeson’s late wife and Micheal’s late mother Natasha Richardson passed away in 2009 and that absence is obviously present. Made in Italy is not breaking the cinematic mold by any stretch, but it’s a nice exercise in father-son bonding.
