Special Screening!

Co-Presented with Independent Film Festival Boston

(2013) dir Paolo Sorrentino w/Toni Sorvillo [141 min; DCP]
Journalist Jep Gambardella (Servillo) has charmed and seduced his way through the lavish nightlife of Rome for decades. Since the legendary success of his one and only novel, he has been a permanent fixture in the city’s literary and social circles, but when his sixty-fifth birthday coincides with a shock from the past, Jep finds himself unexpectedly taking stock of his life, turning his cutting wit on himself and his contemporaries, and looking past the extravagant nightclubs, parties, and cafés to find Rome in all its glory: a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty. One of the most highly lauded foreign films of last year, THE GREAT BEAUTY is a clear spiritual sequel to Fellini’s LA DOLCE VITA anchored by an impeccable performance from the dazzling Toni Servillo.
