Based on true events. There was only one story for Thomas Greco (Vincent Piazza) in New York City in 1992. As John Gotti stood trial, no story was more fascinating, more high-stakes or more out of reach for Thomas, a mob wannabe from a neighbourhood where ties to Gotti were the ultimate social currency. As Thomas searches for any opportunity to insert himself into a world in which no one wants him to have a part, another local fixture, the fading beauty Rose (Patricia Arquette) sees in Thomas the chance to realise her own desire for acceptance and belonging. Through their manic and misguided pursuit to matter to someone, their lives and fates become more entangled, more volatile and more newsworthy than either of them could have ever imagined. From executive producers Martin Scorsese and Dean Devlin, 'The Wannabe' is a new take on mobster lore, intertwining real people and true events, past and present, with fantasy.
