About the Movie
In this breathtaking, Oscar-winning journey to Rome, a reporter begins to take stock of his life on his sixty-fifth birthday, looking past the lavish nightclubs, parties, and cafés to find the city itself, in all its monumental glory. This transporting experience, created by the brilliant Italian director Paolo Sorrentino, is a breathtaking Felliniesque tale of decadence and lost love.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "The Great Beauty" is drop-dead gorgeous, a film that is luxuriously, seductively, stunningly cinematic.
Fresh: If the antics of the beau monde disgust or exhaust you, stay away from Sorrentino's film; look no further, on the other hand, if you wish to know whether, where, and in what guise the spirit of Fellini remains at work-and, better still, at play.
Fresh: It's a beauty, all right. It's more a style show than a deep philosophical treatise, but with surfaces this sleek and faces this interesting, I'll take style over substance any day.
Fresh: Celebrating Rome in all its decay, this florid comedy by Paolo Sorrentino (Il Divo, This Must Be the Place) opens with a hyperbolically gaudy party honoring a celebrity journalist on his 65th birthday.
This movie is visually stunning, poignant, extremely intelligent and thoughtful. One moment you will be among the wealthy circles observing the painting of an angry artist, then you will be standing in the presence of a giraffe in the middle of Rome at a Magician's show. It will make you laugh, cry....dream but more importantly, think --about life.
a shimmering coup de cinema to make your heart burst, your mind swim and your soul roar...
Quote from the UK Telegraph film critic Robbie Collin. I could have said it any better...so Amen to that and if there is one film that is worth watching this year or the next, this would be it...
