PLOT : In debt to the mob, Max Barber (Robert De Niro) — a greedy grind-house film producer — desperately needs money to save himself from getting ‘whacked.’ He decides to to produce a dangerous, new film — just for the sake of killing his lead actor in a stunt and collecting the insurance money. When he casts Duke Montana (Tommy Lee Jones) in his movie, he doesn’t expect the aging, washed-up movie star to find a renewed sense of life in front of the camera. As Duke survives stunt after stunt, Max starts upping the ante of life-threatening, on-set disasters — unwittingly finding himself making the best movie of his career.
The night will feature an exquisite dinner prepared by Celebrity Chef, Massimo Capra, from Capra’s Kitchen, accompanied by very special messages and greetings.
