A GOLDEN BOY
UN RAGAZZO D'ORO
2014, Rai Com, 95 min, Italy, Dir: Pupi Avati

Aspiring writer Davide Bias (Riccardo Scamarcio) looks with disdain at his father’s career penning B-movie screenplays. But his dad had begun an autobiographical novel before his death, and Davide’s attempts to complete it become increasingly obsessive. In the edgy lead role, Scamarcio leaves a strong impression, as does Sharon Stone, who plays a publisher with a personal connection to the unfinished book. In Italian with English subtitles.

Nelson), whose influence had previously gotten the detective demoted. Sharon Stone and singer Vanity costar.
