EUPHORIA
EUFORIA
2018, True Colors, 115 min, Italy, Dir: Valeria Golino

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.


Los Angeles Premiere!

BOYS CRY
LA TERRA DELL'ABBASTANZA
2018, The Match Factory, 96 min, Italy, Dir: Damiano D'Innocenzo, Fabio D'Innocenzo

Twin brothers Damiano and Fabio D'Innocenzo earned a Nastro d'Argento award for Best Debut Director with this superbly crafted crime drama. Matteo Olivetti and Andrea Carpenzano star as Mirko and Manolo, best friends living on the margins of Rome who accidently run over someone. When they discover the man was an informer marked for death, the two use the incident to impress the local mafia … and wind up getting more than they bargained for. “What makes the film so fascinating to watch is that the psychology of the boys keeps bubbling to the surface organically, making it easy for audiences to understand the thought processes behind their (frequently not advisable) actions.” - Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter.


Both films in Italian with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
