LIKE A CAT ON A HIGHWAY
COME UN GATTO IN TANGENZIALE
2017, True Colors, 98 min, Italy, Dir: Riccardo Milani

The lifespan of a teen romance may be as short as that of a cat on a highway, but it’s long enough to spark this hilarious and affecting look at love across class boundaries. When a young man and woman get engaged in Rome, it fosters an unusual friendship between the daughter’s rich father (Antonio Albanese) and the son’s poor mother (Paola Cortellesi). This delightful crowd-pleaser won Nastro d’Argento awards for Best Comedy Film and for the lead performances of Albanese and Cortellesi.
