Little Italy (2018)

A well-intentioned, big hearted, and somewhat successful romantic comedy.

Regan Humphrey

Nikki (Emma Roberts) and Leo (Hayden Christensen) were raised on Italian family values, growing up in the Little Italy neighborhood of Toronto. Their parents worked and owned a pizza shop together, and before a feud broke their two families apart, life together was easy. A decade or so later, Nikki is top student at a London culinary school, while Leo dreams of opening his own organic pizza shop. They’re reunited when Nikki returns to Toronto to prepare a working visa, and while getting to know each other all over again, they start to consider whether their lives would be better if they spent them together.
