“We filmed CHARLIE BOY to be for Astoria what ROCKY was for Philly, only this is a laugh-out-loud comedy. This movie will make you laugh and laugh, all while weaving a deep tapestry of emotion, turmoil and redemption,” says producer Susan Goforth, “CHARLIE BOY turns grief into laughter. And, during filming everyone involved acknowledged the specialness of the screenplay and that we’d better do better than our best on this because there is something special in this film, something people need, like at the end of THE LAST MIMZY. We all felt it and, like the latest A STAR IS BORN movie, we know we were blessed with a lot of things really working and coming together greater than can be expected.”
