Wellington’s Dylan Costanzo Stars In Upcoming Movie ‘The Throwback’

Dylan Costanzo

Dylan Costanzo of Wellington will star in his first feature film, The Throwback, which is out in select theaters this month.

Costanzo, 11, has been acting since the age of three. After auditioning and starring in commercials, he landed the role of “Jordy” in the upcoming feature film, which stars Bobby Lee, Justina Machado and Will Sasso.

Costanzo plays the son of a “super mom” who regresses back to believing she is still 19 and attending college.

Costanzo’s mother, Lauren Tannor, couldn’t be more elated about the movie and her son’s featured role. “We’re very proud of him, and we’ve been lucky enough to have seen the movie — it’s fantastic,” she said. “You’re going to be blown away! Dylan has a ton of funny lines!”

Writer and director Mario Garcia attended USF with the film’s producer, Michael Alfieri, who commented “one day we’ll make a movie together.” And about 30 years later, they did.

The Throwback is about a married couple in a midlife crisis who find their world thrown into hilarious turmoil when an under-appreciated and stressed-out “super mom” (Justina Machado) suffers a post-traumatic breakdown, causing her to regress to her wild, college-age, party-girl self. While she teams up with the neighbor’s 19-year-old daughter (Michelle Randolph) to paint the town red, her bewildered husband (Will Sasso) must navigate the chaos at home.

The movie is scheduled for release on March 15 at select theaters and will also be available On Demand. To learn how to see the movie, as well as the movie trailer, visit www.thethrowbackfilm.com.
