The Great Beauty (15)

2013 (Italy/France) (Comedy, Drama)
(Italian with English subtitles)
Starring: Toni Servillo, Carlo Verdone, Sabrina Ferilli Director: Paolo Sorrentino
This film has just won Best Foreign Language Film of the Year at the Oscars. Dazzlingly ambitious, beautifully filmed, and thoroughly enthralling. Jaded journalist Jep Gambardella (Servillo) lives the Roman high life, swaying from one decadent party to another. But the tolling of time and the superficiality of the scene is taking its toil. Sumptuous and self-indulgent, Sorrentino’s latest is a Fellini-like feast for the eyes.
