Pranzo di Natale - "Figli delle stelle" - 9 dicembre 2012 at 12:00 pm noon

This is the 7th Pranzo italiano of 2012!

The movie is Figli delle stelle (Unlikely Revolutionaries  or Children of the Stars), Italy 2010, directed by Lucio Pellegrini.

It is a bittersweet comedy.

In Lucio Pellegrini's screwball caper, a group of disillusioned citizens take their outrage to another level by attempting to kidnap a corrupt official. The unlikely band of accomplices include a pizza boy, an ardent Marxist, an ex-con, and a fetching TV journalist. Pellegrini's comedy of errors whizzes along with sharply written dialogue and absurd predicaments, humorously illustrating how the contemporary political scene in Italy could drive anyone to distraction.

Runtime: 1h 39 min

The movie is in Italian with English subtitles.


tortellini in brodo - tortellini in broth

tavolata di salumi e formaggi, olive, pane - tableful of salami and cheeses, olives, bread

acqua o bibita - mineral water or soda

panettone e calice di spumante - panettone and a glass of sparkling wine.

All food and spumante are imported directly from Italy!

Tax and gratuities are not included. The movie is free.

The event will take place only if at least 15 people sign up. This number must be reached by December 6. If the headcount is not met, the event will be cancelled.

The maximum number of attendees is 22, but we will watch the 'wait list' and try to get you in if there is a cancellation.

Due to limited seating and as the owner needs a correct headcount, in the event you are not able to attend, please cancel your reservation with at least 48 hours' notice.
