The Great Beauty

The Great Beauty

A film by Paolo Sorrentino
Starring Toni Servillo, Carlo Verdone, Sabrina Ferilli

Rome, Italy, lush, timeless, opulent, and home to journalist Jep Gambardella (Toni Servillo of Il divo and Gomorrah). Since the early success of his one and only novel decades ago, Jep has been a permanent fixture in the city’s literary and social circles and has thoroughly enjoyed every pleasure Rome has to offer.

But as his sixty-fifth birthday comes and goes, Jep finds himself beginning to take stock of his life; looking past the extravagant nightclubs, parties, and cafes to see himself and Rome in a new light. Called “A Technicolor La Dolce Vita for the Berlusconi era,” The Great Beauty is a sensuous epic, a breathtaking feast for the senses and a compelling introspective journey into the life and mind of a man and the eternal city.

An outlandishly entertaining hallucination.New York Times

A masterpiece, a grand swooning epic, lush to the point of insanity. —Catherine Shoard, The Guardian
