An essay by film historian John DiLeo about the film Two Family House (2000) directed by Raymond De Felitta and starring Michael Rispoli and Katherine Narducci, Kevin Conway and Kelly Macdonald. Excerpted from John DiLeo’s Screen Savers II: My Grab Bag of Classic Movies, “Ivy (1947): Casting Against Type.” Two Family House is about the ways in which the insular, protective nature of single-ethnicity neighborhoods can be a severe detriment to those who want to venture beyond the imposed boundaries and forge a unique path.
