BUFFALO, NY - Dr. Andrew Cappuccino is best known for saving the life of Buffalo Bills tight end Kevin Everett during a game in 2007, but now he and his wife are adding "filmmaker" to their already impressive resumes. A feature film they produced opened in Buffalo today.
The movie, Arthur Newman, has already opened in major cities, but Friday it started its run locally. Orthopedic surgeon Andrew Cappuccino and his wife Helen, a Roswell Park surgical oncologist, are executive producers
"It's always been a great love of ours, even from the time we couldn't afford to rub two nickels together, we saw films together. It's our pastime," said Dr. Andrew Cappuccino.
While at a speaking engagement with Everett, the Cappuccinos met people from the film industry who encouraged them to break into the business. Fast forward several years and now they are walking the red carpet.
