Buongiorno a Tutti!
You're invited to enjoy an Italian film on February 10, 2013 at 5:00pm. The film is another installment in our monthly film series called Cineforum Italiano. This month's film will be hit comedy NESSUNO MI PUO' GIUDICARE and, for the first time, we'll be screening the film in the Main Hall at Casa Italiana. During the film you'll be able to enjoy snacks and a glass of wine/water/beverage. After the film is an optional pasta dinner.

In Italian with English subtitles.
Alice (Paola Cortellesi) is a housewife in a posh part of Rome and a mother to nine year old Filippo (Giovanni Bruno) enjoying a luxurious home and lifestyle. When her husband dies in a car accident she is left with a massive debt and the risk of losing her son. Desperately in need of cash, and with no skills, Alice turns to the oldest profession in the world.
Realizing she is totally out of her depth, Alice looks to another escort, Eva (Anna Foglietta), for guidance and soon she goes from awkward amateur to seductive professional. Meanwhile Alice and her son move to her former butler's neighborhood, and a new world of working-class folk – including a love interest in Giulio (Italian heart-throb Raoul Bova).
Cortellesi, who won Italy's equivalent of an Oscar for this role, exudes warmth and charm as the new high-price call girl. The film also won Italy's Golden Globe and "Nastri d'argento" as Best Comedy. This is a frothy film with over-the-top comedy, romantic sentimentality and just a dash of social commentary.
Here's the trailer for the film: http://youtu.be/AkXNUf6KFnE
Please join us for this fun event which, as I mentioned, will take place at Casa Italiana. The new location is very metro accessible (Judiciary Square) and, in addition, offers FREE parking. We will also be able to enjoy the flavors of Italy at Caffe' Italia.
