There’s some Hollywood excitement in our neck of the woods.
Award-winning actor Robert De Niro has brought his dad skills to the big screen once again with his latest movie, “About My Father.”
It was filmed right here in Mobile and Baldwin Counties.
With De Niro in the lead, the film promises another dose of his signature emotionally constipated patriarch charm, reminiscent of his beloved “Fockers” character.
So, why did they choose our little slice of paradise for the shoot?
Well, aside from our beautiful Gulf Coast scenery, the filmmakers were lured by the economic advantages and warm welcome they received.
Let’s face it, we’re not quite as busy as other states’ production houses, so we’ve got the resources to make movie magic happen here.
The movie premiered nationwide, now bringing attention to our vibrant community and the talented locals who got involved.
But it’s not just about the glitz and glamour.
The film’s release marks a significant milestone for our local film industry, bouncing back after the COVID-induced pause.
So, grab your popcorn and head to the theater to support this hilarious flick.
“About My Father” is here to remind us that family can be a source of laughter and love, even when things get a little… embarrassing.
