@ 7:30 PM: L'immensità by Emanuele Crialese (2022)
Rome, 1970s: Clara and Felice have just moved into a new apartment. Their marriage is over: they don't love each other anymore, but they can't let go. It is the children who keep them together, on whom Clara pours all her desire for freedom. Adriana, the eldest, has just turned 12 and is the most attentive witness of Clara's moods and the growing tensions between her parents. Adriana rejects her name, her identity, and wants to convince everyone that she is a boy. Her obstinacy of hers brings the already fragile family balance to breaking point. While the children wait for a sign to guide them, whether it's a voice from above or a song on TV, everything around and inside them changes.
Cast: Penelope Cruz, Luana Giuliani, Vincenzo Amato, Patrizio Francioni, Maria Chiara Goretti, Penelope Nieto Conti, Alvia Reale, India Santella, Mariangela Granelli, Valentina Cenni, Elena Arvigo, Carlo Gallo, Laura Nardi, Rita De Donato, Filippo Pucillo, Aurora Quattrocchi.
Awards: Nominated Best Film, Queer Lion (Emanuele Crialese): Venice Film Festival.
