Vintage Polish Posters | Things Change | Wieslaw Walkulski

Things Change is a 1988 American comedy-drama film directed by David Mamet and starring Joe Mantegna and Don Ameche. It was co-written by Mamet and Shel Silverstein. The film follows the story of Gino, an elderly shoe shiner, who is mistaken for a mobster. When he’s offered a substantial sum to take the fall for a crime he didn’t commit, Gino agrees. However, things take an unexpected turn when Jerry, a low-level mobster assigned to guard him, decides to give Gino one last taste of freedom. The two form an unlikely bond, leading to a series of humorous and poignant adventures as they navigate the complications of their situation. The film blends sharp dialogue, wit, and touching moments, creating a unique and engaging narrative.
