Familiar to American audiences as an actress, Valeria Golino (HONEY) adds to her directorial résumé with this drama, which screened in Cannes’ Un Certain Regard section. High-flying entrepreneur Matteo (Riccardo Scamarcio) and schoolteacher Ettore (Valerio Mastandrea) are siblings whose very different lives converge after Ettore is diagnosed with a terminal illness; taking charge of his brother’s treatment, Matteo tries to hide the truth from all involved. Jasmine Trinca gives a poignant turn as the woman with whom Ettore has fallen in love.
