Two Family House (2000)

From Netflix: Blue-collar Italian-American Buddy Visalo (Michael Rispoli) has a record of failed business ventures. After buying a rundown home, his new scheme is to transform the bottom floor into a neighborhood bar. But first he must oust the current tenants -- an abandoned Irish mother (Kelly Macdonald) and her half-black baby. Inspired by the true story of director Raymond De Felitta's uncle, Two Family House won a Sundance Film Festival Audience Award. 2000, 109 minutes
