Oscar Nominee: Best Foreign Language Film and
Golden Globe Winner - Best Foreign Language Film

Palme d’Or nominee and Italy’s official candidate for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, this dazzling film is a Fellini-esque homage to the city of Rome. It centers on a fictional journalist named Jep Gambardella (Toni Servillo, Il Divo). Since the legendary success of his one and only novel, he's been a permanent fixture in Rome’s literary and social scene, but when his 65th 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. He sees past the glitz to find Rome in all its glory: a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty. With subtitles. (Paolo Sorrentino; Italy; 2013; 150 min)
