Screening of the film

The notorious Italian murder trial of Amanda Knox is the catalyst for this mirror-image fictional narrative, but director Winterbottom (THE TRIP TO ITALY, THE TRIP) pulls an artful bait-and-switch as he employs his signature talent for evoking the haunting allure of Italian locations. The film focuses on the labyrinthine story of Thomas Lang (Brühl), a filmmaker who disdains the trial’s heated media frenzy to trace the hazy trail of the murder victim. In the manner of Dante, Lang is led into the lower depths of the Tuscan city of Siena by two muses, an elusive journalist (Beckinsale) and a wild-child British student (Cara Delevingne). In English and Italian with English subtitles.Fri, Jun 19th at 8:00pmSat, Jun 20th at 5:00pmSun, Jun 21st at 5:30pmMon, Jun 22nd at 8:00pmTue, Jun 23rd at 6:00pmWed, Jun 24th at 8:00pmThu, Jun 25th at 8:15pm
