(Writer/Director/Producer) Michael Corrente returns to his native
Rhode Island with OUTSIDE PROVIDENCE, a coming-out-of-the-haze
comedy he co-wrote with Peter and Bobby Farrelly. Corrente made
an impressive feature film debut with "Federal Hill,"
a critically admired story of a group of Italian American friends
in Rhode Island. The film won top honors at France's Deauville
Film Festival. He went on to produce and direct "American
Buffalo" starring Dustin Hoffman and Dennis Franz, based
on David Mamet's three-person play. He also produced "Say
You'll Be Mine" starring Libby Langdon, Gil Bellows, Justine
Bateman and Daniel Lapaine.
Corrente grandauted from Trinity Repertory Conservatory in 1981
and immediately landed in New York City where he established Studio
B Theater Ensemble and produced and directed over twenty plays
including "American Buffalo" by David Mamet, "Lone
Star" by Jame McClure and "The Balcony" by Jean
Genet. After developing his one act play, "Not For Nuthin"'
into the full-length play "Federal Hill," Corrente produced
it for the stage in New York's Sanford Meisner Theater. That effort
spurred his crossover into the film industry and "Federal
Hill" became his first feature film.
