Miami Theatrical DIGITAL Premiere!
(Pranzo di ferragosto)
(Directed by Gianni Di Gregorio/Italy/2009/75mins.)
With Gianni Di Gregorio, Valeria di Franciscis, Marina Cacciotti)
The charismatic Gianni Di Gregorio (co-scenarist of the smash hit Gomorrah), stars in his directorial debut—an utterly charming tale of good food, feisty ladies and unlikely friendships during a very Roman holiday. Broke, and armed with only a glass of wine and a wry sense of humor, middle-aged Gianni resides with his 93-year-old mother in their ancient apartment. The condo debts are mounting, but if Gianni looks after the building manager’s mother during the Pranzo di Ferragosto (Italy’s biggest summer holiday, and the Feast of the Assumption), all will be forgiven. Winner of numerous prizes at international festivals, including Best First Film at Venice and the Satyajit Ray Award at London, Mid-August Lunch is both warmly vibrant family drama and delicately balanced comedy of manners.
