Kiss Carlo (2017) is the story of the Palazzinis, a boisterous Italian clan led by feuding brothers Dominic and Mike, set in post-WWII South Philadelphia. Trigiani uses motifs from Shakespearian plays to craft a world of engaging characters in this sprawling comedy/drama filled with romance, buried secrets, and mistaken identities but were ultimately true love reigns.
