THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME
A CASA TUTTI BENE
2018, Indie Sales, 105 min, Italy, Dir: Gabriele Muccino

“This movie is about everything: life, our existences, about how difficult it is to live with anyone, from your partner to your children and finally your parents … how hard it is to be fair,” notes Gabriele Muccino of this appealing ensemble dramedy, which follows a string of U.S.-set English-language films (including THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS) by the director. The setting here is an island off the Italian coast, where an extended clan has reunited to celebrate the 50th anniversary of grandparents Pietro and Alba; when a storm traps them for two days, three generations struggle to sort out long-simmering family issues.

THE STOLEN CARAVAGGIO
UNA STORIA SENZA NOME
2018, Rai Com, 110 min, Italy/France, Dir: Roberto Andò

As this immaculately crafted drama begins, top screenwriter Alessandro Gassmann, bereft of inspiration, turns to ghost writer Micaela Ramazzotti for his latest project; the script she provides him involves a priceless stolen artwork. But the tale turns out to be more true-to-life than the painting’s Sicilian mafia thieves would like, complicating things for both scribes. Adding to the multilayered story, Jerzy Skolimowski costars as the director of the film within this film.


Both films in Italian with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
