“Almost Paris” may sound like an unusual title for a film about the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, but even more unusual is the film’s connection to the North Fork.
Cynthia and Tom Rosicki, owners of Sparkling Pointe Winery in Southold, are the film’s executive producers.
“Almost Paris” is about Max, a former banker who returns to his hometown after the crisis to face his family and friends and see the impact of his actions.
The film was conceived and written by Wally Marzano-Lesnevich, a native of Tenafly, N.J., who plays Max.
With the location decided, the Rosickis were thrilled to learn that Domenica Cameron-Scorsese, daughter of Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese, would direct.
“Almost Paris” will premiere April 24 at the Tribeca Film Festival.
