The Plaza Theater Screening of La Grande Bellezza Opening January 31st

THE GREAT BEAUTY
(La Grande Bellezza)
Directed by PAOLO SORRENTINO/Italy/2013/142mins.
With Toni Servillo, Carlo Verdone, Sabrina Ferelli, Carlo Buccirosso
Journalist Jep Gambardella (the dazzling Toni Servillo, Il divo and Gomorrah) has been a permanent fixture in Rome’s literary and social circles since the legendary success of his one and only novel. Armed with a roguish charm, he has seduced his way through the city’s lavish night life for decades, but when his 65th birthday coincides with a shock from the past, Jep finds himself unexpectedly taking stock of his life, turning his cutting wit on himself and his contemporaries, and looking past the extravagant nightclubs, parties, and cafés to find Rome in all its glory: a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty.
