About My Father Movie Netflix

Although About My Father could theoretically come to Netflix in the future, no plans have been announced for it to join the streaming giant following its theatrical run. In the meanwhile, you’ll have to go to a movie theatre or wait for it to be released digitally.

For his feature film debut, comedian Sebastian Maniscalco is stepping into autobiographical terrain. The comedy About My Father, based on Maniscalco’s own relationship with his father and extended family, will be released in theatres next year.

Maniscalco’s stand-up is centred on his family background and upbringing, particularly his life with Italian immigrant parents. Beginning his career at open mic nights in the early 2000s, he has published five stand-up comedy specials as of 2022, with the two most recent exclusively available on Netflix. While he has appeared in supporting roles in films such as Tag, Green Book, and The Irishman, Maniscalco’s first leading role in a major production will be in About My Father. Maniscalco and Austen Earl are co-writing the screenplay, and Laura Terruso will direct. Lionsgate and Depth of Field will produce with Chris Weitz, Paul Weitz, Andrew Miano, and Judi Marmel. Distribution will also be handled by Lionsgate.

The official release date for About My Father is Friday, May 26, 2023.
