Angie is a 1994 romantic comedy-drama film directed by Martha Coolidge, and starring Geena Davis as the title character. It is based on the 1991 novel Angie, I Says by Avra Wing, which was a New York Times Notable Book of 1991.
Angie Scacciapensieri (Geena Davis) is an office worker who lives in the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn, New York and dreams of a better life. After learning that she is pregnant by her boyfriend, Vinnie (James Gandolfini), she decides that she will have the baby, but not him as a husband.
This turns the entire neighborhood upside down and starts her on a journey of self-discovery, including a love affair with a man named Noel (Stephen Rea) she meets at an art museum. Even her best friend, Tina (Aida Turturro), has trouble understanding her.
The film opened to mixed reviews but did not make as much money as was hoped. In addition, Geena Davis, who won an Oscar six years before for The Accidental Tourist received mixed to negative reviews. Critics felt she could have been better in this film or another set in Brooklyn: originally, Madonna was going to play the title character, but dropped out at the last minute. The film was famous for introducing three actors who would star on the TV show The Sopranos: James Gandolfini, Aida Turturro, and Michael Rispoli.
The film was nominated an Artios for Best Casting for Feature Film, Comedy by the Casting Society of America.
