The acclaimed independent film Trattoria is now available everywhere for rent or purchase on all broadband platforms as of Sept. 17, 2013 through FilmBuff on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, Xbox Video, Sony Playstation, Cinemanow and Vudu. The film will also be released on DVD in early October. Director Jason Wolos and co-writer and producer Dawn Rich have teamed up with digital entertainment curator FilmBuff to deliver their feature film Trattoria to food and movie lovers in the US and Canada.
Trattoria serves up a slice of San Franciscoʼs high-stakes restaurant and food culture, cutting candidly into a celebrity chefʼs hopes and fears during the opening of his new restaurant. The film uniquely adds culinary flavor to a classic father-son story. When Sal Sartiniʼs craving for critical success, epitomized by the coveted Michelin star, causes him to underestimate the significance of family, the impassioned chef must rethink his values or risk losing his son.
The filmʼs narrative is punctuated with interviews of some of todayʼs top chefs: “One of Trattoriaʼs smartest moves is seamlessly integrating casual interviews with real-life restaurateurs. This canny element, combined with sumptuous shots of Salʼs succulent creations and nocturnal, unexpected snapshots of San Francisco, makes us feel not only like a member of Salʼs restaurant family, but part of the vast community of local chefs, line cooks, waitresses, and maître dʼs.” – Michael Fox, KQED News.
The film stars Tony Denison (Major Crimes, The Closer) and John Patrick Amedori (Gossip Girl, The Last Stand, Jane Mansfieldʼs Car), with a supporting cast that includes Lisa Rotondi (Jerry McGuire) and Kandis Erickson (Iʼm Not a Hipster). Also featured are celebrity chefs Elizabeth Falkner (The Next Iron Chef, Top Chef) Traci Des Jardins (Top Chef Masters), and Craig Stoll.
This film marks the first feature from director Jason Wolos and co-writer/producer Dawn Rich, whose attention to detail enhance an already sumptuous production, creating a movie experience that rivals the likes of Big Night, Eat Drink Man Woman and No Reservations.
Trattoria has played to sold out audiences at the Sonoma International Film Festival, Carmel Art & Film Festival, and San Francisco Cinema by the Bay Festival.
