James Gandolfini's 1995 'Mint Julep' Finally Available

For fans of James Gandolfini, Rick Warner at Bloomberg reports that 'Mint Julep' (with Gandolfini and Angelica Torn) is finally available. The movie was shot in 1995 but post-production was stalled repeatedly due to money issues:

“We finished our first rough cut in 1998, but we kept running out of money so it sat around for a long time before we finished it.”

Written and directed by Kathy Fehl and Ian Teal, the movie was finally released in May of 2010 getting a run at Gerold Opera House in Weyauwega, Wisconsin. It's available on DVD at

'Mint Julep' was filmed after Gandolfini had a measure of success with 'Get Shorty', 'Terminal Velocity', and 'Crimson Tide'.

Also starring is David Morse, who had done a lot of TV and had 'Twelve Monkeys' and 'The Crossing Guard' under his belt at the time.

Probably worth a spin.
