The Great Beauty (La Grande Bellezza)

Gorgeously photographed in Rome and Tuscany, The Great Beauty (La Grande Bellezza) is a dazzling, lyrical and at times surreal dramatic comedy, like a modern day La Dolce Vita. The magnetic Toni Servillo (Il Divo, Gomorrah) plays dapper journalist Jep Gambardella, slick and soulful, who has been a permanent fixture in Rome’s literary and social circles since the legendary success of his one and only novel. Armed with a roguish charm, he has seduced his way through the city’s lavish night life for decades, 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, and looking past the extravagant nightclubs, parties and cafés, Jep discovers Rome in all its glory: a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty. Directed and co-written by Paolo Sorrentino (This Must Be The Place, Il Divo)
