Filmworks presents: THE GREAT BEAUTY
Sent to mailinglist subscribers on January 9, 2014
You might dream of living a rich-and-famous lifestyle. But once you are there, what would it take for you to question its value?
Filmworks will open its 2014 season at this historic Tower Theatre this Friday, Jan. 10 with the sprawling Italian drama “The Great Beauty.” Show times are 5:30 and 8:45 p.m. The film, a contemporary re-imagining of the 1960 Federico Fellini classic “La Dolce Vita,” tells the story of an aging journalist who has for years enjoyed life atop Rome’s lavish nightlife, only to make a discovery on his 65th birthday that leads him to question his grand, lavish routine.
“The Great Beauty” earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Foreign-Language Film, and it is shortlisted for an Oscar nomination (due out next week) in the same category. It won four top prizes at the recent 2013 European Film Awards, including Best Film and Best Director.
