AN ALMOST ORDINARY SUMMER
CROCE E DELIZIADirected by Simone Godano
Cast: Alessandro Gassmann, Jamine Trinca, Fabrizio Bentivoglio, Filippo Scicchitano
Unbeknownst to their respective families, wealthy Tony is engaged to marry blue-collar Carlo. When these grandfathers set up a seaside vacation for their families to learn about their betrothal, sparks fly on both sides. Tony and Carlo’s children grapple with their own pride and prejudice as the grooms-to-be try to keep the peace on their way to the altar. This riotous farce explores family dynamics, love after 60, and the unifying power of soccer super-fandom.
