THE TRAITOR
IL TRADITORE
2019, Sony Pictures, 152 min, Italy/France/Germany/Brazil, Dir: Marco Bellocchio

From veteran Italian filmmaker Marco Bellocchio (FISTS IN THE POCKET, GOOD MORNING, NIGHT) comes the true story of Tommaso Buscetta, former made mobster turned Mafia informant. Set in Sicily in the 1980s, THE TRAITOR begins amid an all-out war between two Sicilian mafia bosses. Feeling the escalating pressure as his allies begin to be picked off, Buscetta flees to Brazil, where he faces a decision that will change the entire history of the Italian mob. Pierfrancesco Favino, Luigi Lo Cascio and Fausto Russo Alesi star in this riveting crime drama, which was nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. “THE TRAITOR is big, bold, confident film-making.” - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.
