Oscar-winning director Paolo Sorrentino reunites with his charismatic lead in ‘The Great Beauty’, Toni Servillo, to tell the story of Silvio Berlusconi, the former Italian Prime Minister.
Some would say Servillo was born to play the mercurial politician, drenched in a sea of debauchery and glamour and creating an advert for how power seduces and ultimately…corrupts. We are accompanied by a young chancer, keen to get inside the top man’s inner circle.
No-one depicts Italian allure and intrigue like Sorrentino and there is no better place to join in the party from the comfort of your own home.
