The Great Beauty // La Grande Bellezza follows the bedazzled life of an aging journalist, now discovering the ancient and hidden wonders of Rome. Directed by Paolo Sorrentino, and starring Toni Servillo.
Official synopsis can be read as follows:
“Journalist Jep Gambardella (the dazzling Toni Servillo, Il divo and Gomorrah) has charmed and seduced his way through the lavish nightlife of Rome for decades. Since the legendary success of his one and only novel, he has been a permanent fixture in the city’s literary and social circles, but when his sixty-fifth 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.”
