Since his firefighter father died when Scott was seven, Scott has been a case of arrested development. He reached his mid-20s having achieved little, chasing a dream of becoming a tattoo artist that seems far out of reach. As his sister heads off to college, Scott is still living with his exhausted ER nurse mother and spending his days smoking weed, hanging with the guys, and secretly hooking up with his childhood friend. But when his mother starts dating a loudmouth firefighter named Ray, it sets off a chain of events that will force Scott to grapple with his grief and take his first tentative steps towards moving forward in life.
The King of Staten Island is a 2020 American comedy-drama film directed by Judd Apatow, from a screenplay by Apatow, Pete Davidson, and Dave Sirus. It stars Davidson, Marisa Tomei, Bill Burr, Bel Powley, Maude Apatow, and Steve Buscemi, and follows a young man who must get his life together after his mother starts dating a new man who, like his deceased father, is a firefighter.The film was announced as Apatow's next project in early 2019, with the cast joining that April. Filming took place around New York City in June and July. The film has been called a "semi-biographical" take on the life of Davidson, who lost his firefighter father during the September 11 attacks and has had his own battles with mental illness.Originally intended to be theatrically released in the United States, the film was released digitally via Premium VOD on June 12, 2020, by Universal Pictures. It received generally positive reviews from critics, who praised Davidson's performance and Apatow's handling of the mature subject matter.
