New Jersey Independent Film Premieres

"Mail Order Bride," the first feature film to be shot jointly in New Jersey and Russia, will arrive in movie theaters in the New Jersey/New York area on November 21st, 2003.

This outrageous action-comedy, starring, co-written and co-directed by Hoboken resident Robert Capelli, Jr., also features fellow New Jerseyans Danny Aiello and Artie Lange. Ivana Milicevic, Frank Gorshin, Jackie Martling and Vincent Pastore are in the supporting cast.

The story concerns the misadventures of Anthony Santini, the nephew of a mob boss who is sent to Russia to find a beautiful "mail-order bride" who cheated five would-be grooms out of their money. A Relativity Pictures and Small Planet Pictures release, "Mail Order Bride" was filmed in Hoboken and Jersey City, and in many famous Russian locations rarely seen in features, such as Red Square, the Kremlin wall and Lenin's Tomb.

This is Capelli's second effort as writer/director, according to Joseph Friedman, Executive Director of the New Jersey Motion Picture and Television Commission. His first film, "The Rules For Men," was filmed in Hoboken, Kearny and Wayne in 1998, and won several film festival awards.
