The Great Beauty | Open Air screening as part of 'City on Film'

QUAD_GREAT-BEAUTY_compress.jpeg

A sensual and mysterious journey through Rome at its most fashionable.

Paolo Sorrentino's swooning depiction of Jep Gambardella, an ageing man-about-town who is shocked out of his gentle decline through mortality by an unexpected knock at his apartment door. 

As we follow Jep from the aristocracy of haute couture, through the darkest corridors of the Vatican to the trashiest temples of Eurotrash, we are drawn into the seductive glory of this meditation on the opulence of life - and the melancholy of its passing.

Please note - this is an outdoor screening so please dress up warm. Sound will be provided through wireless headphones to ensure highest quality for the audience.
