Eluana Englaro becomes a national tragedy in Italy when the decision is taken to put an end to her life after 17 years in a vegetative state. This drama will affect the lives of four characters, each with their own beliefs: a senator, struggling to vote a law with which he profoundly disagrees, is torn between his conscience and his loyalty towards the leaders of his party; his daughter, a pro-life activist, while demonstrating in front of Eluana’s clinic, falls in love with Roberto, who advocates secular values; a famous actress turns towards faith and miracle-cures in hope of bringing her daughter out of an irreversible coma, thus neglecting her son who longs for his mother’s love; and the beautiful Rossa, lost in despair and determined to die, is saved by the young doctor Pallido and reawakens to life. These converging stories are connected by a unique emotional thread: a reflection on the meaning of life. In Italian with English subtitles. 

FOUR STARS. “[A] tough, poignant drama … with an overarching humanism that gives equal weight to the many feelings stirred up by this hot-button situation.” 
—Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York

Directed By: Bernardo Bertolucci
Rated: Unrated
Running Time: 97 min.

Bertolucci’s first Italian-language feature in 32 years follows Lorenzo, a quirky 14-year-old loner who has difficult relationships with his parents and peers. Lorenzo decides to take a break from it all by hiding out in his building’s neglected basement where for an entire week he will finally avoid all conflict and pressure to be a “normal” teenager. But an unexpected visit from Lorenzo’s older half-sister Olivia changes everything. A worldly 25-year-old beauty, her problematic and fragile state upsets Lorenzo’s total escape from reality, and their forced cohabitation in the basement’s confined space brings forth confrontation and old resentments, but also a need for affection and intimacy. A few emotional days and nights with his sister Olivia will inspire Lorenzo to see the world through new eyes. In Italian with English subtitles. 

“Bertolucci’s sly, sleek images distill a lifetime of aesthetic passion and exalt the very luxury that they deride.”
—Richard Brody, The New Yorker

Who is Vivian Maier? Now considered one of the 20th century’s greatest street photographers, Vivian Maier was a mysterious nanny who secretly took over 100,000 photographs that went unseen during her lifetime. Since buying her work by chance at auction, amateur historian John Maloof has crusaded to put this prolific photographer in the history books. Maier’s strange and riveting life and art are revealed through never-before-seen photographs, films, and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her. 

“Self-taught and roaming free in the city, Vivian Maier captured the remarkable in the ordinary”
—Ella Taylor (NPR)
