The film is based on the autobiography of Cassa Palminteri (Calogero Lorenzo Palminteri), who refused to sell the film rights to the books so far, while de Niro told him to write the script and play it one of the main roles.

However, during the interrogation he was not given a killer, earning him the sympathy, and eventually a kind of «parental» love mafia.

Children is scary. And not in terms of responsibilities and endless duties which they bring by the hand, and literally. At least in this film.

But in fact it turned out that the rescue from this sad and silent child need others. In this mystical Thriller was played by Renee Zellweger, Bradley Cooper and Jodell Ferland. The latter has already managed to light up in a decent amount of horror («silent hill», «Supernatural», «the cabin in the woods»).
