The Great Beauty

"A deliriously alive movie, The Great Beauty is the story of a man, a city, a country and a cinema, though not necessarily in that order." (Manohla Dargis, New York Times)

Westchester Exclusive!
Academy Award Nominee for Best Foreign Language Film
Journalist Jep Gambardella (Toni Servillo, Il divo and Gomorrah) has charmed his way through the lavish nightlife of Rome. Since the legendary success of his one and only novel, he has been a permanent fixture in the city's literary and social circles, but when his sixty-fifth birthday coincides with a shock from the past, Jep turns his cutting wit on himself and his contemporaries, and looks past the extravagant parties and cafés to find Rome in all its glory: a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty.
