Holiday Weekend Must-see: The Great Beauty


Paolo Sorrentino's latest feature The Great Beauty - aka Italy's submission for Academy Awards' Best Foreign Language Film and New Italian Cinema's Closing Night Film - is opening this Friday in the Bay Area!  It was a packed house for our screening, so we suggest finding your tickets in advance at Opera Plaza Cinema, Shattuck Cinemas, and Rafael Film Center.  Share your own  mini-review in the comments below!

Rome never looked more beautiful, and the acting ability of [Tony Servillo], who can do more with less than almost any actor going, makes this a personal journey well worth experiencing.
