Stars of the new Australian film BIG MAMMA'S BOY came to Village Cinemas at Crown to celebrate the Melbourne Premiere. The film is directed by Perth-born filmmaker Franco Di Chiera and stars Frank Lotito (also writer), Holly Valance, George Kapinaris, Costas, Nick Farnell, Carmelina Di Guglielmo, Pia Miller, Kristie Jandric, Cassandra Magrath, Natalie Gauci and Maria Venuti.

The story's leading character, Rocco (Frank Lotito), is a 35-year-old bachelor, still living at home, and very much under the thumb of his overbearing, pasta and iron-wielding mamma (Carmelina Di Guglielmo), who goes to great lengths to keep her ‘man-child’ son close. Mamma does everything for her son, cooking his meals, preparing his lunches for work and ironing his shirts. She even backs his car out of the driveway for him in the morning! The film is set in the suburbs of Melbourne,

Big Mamma’s Boy opens in cinemas on Thursday, July 28.
