Scott (Pete Davidson) has been a case of arrested development ever since his firefighter father died when he was seven. Now in his mid-20s and having achieved little, he starts chasing his dream of becoming a tattoo artist. As his ambitious younger sister (Maude Apatow) heads off to college, Scott is still living with his ER nurse mother (Marisa Tomei). He spends his days smoking weed, hanging with the guys – Oscar (Ricky Velez), Igor (Moises Arias) and Richie (Lou Wilson) – and secretly hooking up with his childhood friend Kelsey (Bel Powley).
But when his mother starts dating a loudmouth firefighter named Ray (Bill Burr), it sets off a chain of events that will force Scott to grapple with his grief and take his first tentative steps toward moving forward in life.
The King of Staten Island is a bracing comedy film about love, loss and laughter, directed by Judd Apatow (Trainwreck, Knocked Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin), from a screenplay by Apatow, Pete Davidson, and Dave Sirus. It stars Pete Davidson, Marisa Tomei, Bill Burr, Bel Powley, Maude Apatow, and Steve Buscemi.
