On the surface, the Attorres are as average as they come: They reside in a decorous suburb of Rome, get by comfortably with middle-class jobs and have an adorably imaginative 6-year-old daughter. Beneath this cozy façade, however, is a family unit on the verge of crisis. Family patriarch Luca is failing as a freelance journalist, wife and mother Susi finds herself teaching ballet exclusively to overweight women and daughter Lucilla, suffering from extreme asthma, is frequently neglected. When Mary Ann, an Irish Catholic au pair, arrives and starts to pry into the family’s affairs, tensions quickly rise to the surface. Starring Micaela Ramazzotti, Adriano Giannini, Massimo Ghini and Marcello Fonte (Cannes 2018 Best Actor for DOGMAN).

When millionaire entrepreneur Adriano (Riccardo Scamarcio) wakes up in a hotel room to find his lover brutally murdered, he becomes trapped in a Hitchcockian nightmare when police finger him as the sole suspect. Charged with the killing and put under house arrest, Adriano calls upon veteran criminal attorney Virginia Ferrara (Maria Paiato), who is tasked with assembling his defense in a single night. As Adriano proceeds to tell her his story piece by piece, it becomes clear that the case is far more complicated than his lawyer ever could have expected. Stefano Mordini directs this dark mystery thriller with refreshing energy, taking the audience through unexpected twists every step of the way.

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