GREAT ITALIAN FILM: LA DOLCE VITA (Fellini, 1960) & DINNER (optional)

Part of Amherst Cinema's Masterpieces of Italian Film Series, La Dolce Vita (Italian for "the sweet life" or "the good life") is a 1960 comedy-drama film written and directed by the critically acclaimed director Federico Fellini. The film follows Marcello Rubini, a journalist writing for gossip magazines, over seven days and nights on his journey through the "sweet life" of Rome in a fruitless search for love and happiness amidst decadence and madness.  La Dolce Vita won the Palme d'Or (Golden Palm) at the 1960 Cannes Film Festival and the Oscar for Best Costumes. Anyone who wishes may join me for dinner beforehand at Bertucci's in Amherst at 5 p.m. The restaurant is located at 51 East Pleasant Street.    COST: $8.75 ($7.75 with student i.d.) for your ticket plus $1 which I will collect from attendees toward the payment of our dues to Meetup which allows our group to exist.
