The King of Staten Island (out Jul 16) is loosely inspired by the upbringing of actor-comedian Pete Davidson and is about a 24-year-old from New York who is trying to become financially independent while battling mental health issues. It’s a little long and a few subplots feel unnecessary but it's worth seeing for its humour, its themes and its performances. Grade: B+.
