This is a double feature sponsored by Cinema Italian Style 2010. The festival is supported by the Italian Ministry of Culture and the Italian Film Commission. Here's a synopsis of the two films. I'll be there wearing my famous blue dodgers jacket, sitting on the left in the middle.
Double Feature: Los Angeles Premiere! ME, THEM AND LARA (IO, LORO E LARA), 2010, Warner Bros., 115 min. Dir. Carlo Verdone. Carlo (played by director Verdone), a missionary who has spent the past 10 years of his life in Africa, returns home to Rome to find he is the completely ignored guest in a "new" family. His father is now married to a voluptuous vixen, Carlo?s sister is completely submerged in a sea of her own imaginary problems and their bankrupt brother is merrily hooked on more than just the volatile stock market. When the charming yet duplicitous Lara (Laura Chiatti) arrives, the family?s situation only gets more chaotic before it gets better in this winning comedy. [35 mm] Trailer | Website
Los Angeles Premiere! OUR LIFE (LA NOSTRA VITA), 2010, Rai Trade, 98 min. Dir. Daniele Luchetti. Claudio (Elio Germano) is madly in love with his wife, who is pregnant with their third child. He works on a site in the new suburbs of Rome, dreaming of giving his family a life of luxury and riches. When a severe injustice befalls Claudio, the once honest man begins to morally unravel as he fights for redemption. Winner of the award for Best Actor (Germano) at the Cannes International Film Festival 2010. [35 mm] Trailer | Buy Tickets
