Fresno Filmworks Kicks Off 2014 Season

Fresno Filmworks will launch its 2014 season with a screening of the award-winning Italian film "The Great Beauty" on Friday, Jan. 10th, at the Tower Theatre.
Fresno Filmworks will hold its first screening of 2014 this Friday, January 10th, at the historic Tower Theatre. Screening times are 5:30 and 8:45 p.m. for "The Great Beauty".

From the website:

Filmworks presents the Italian drama that The Washington Post calls “more ravishingly Fellini-esque than many of Federico Fellini’s own movies.” Winner of four top honors at the 2013 European Film Awards — including Best Film and Best Director — the movie tells the story of journalist Jep Gambardella, an aging bon vivant who has risen to the higher echelons of Rome’s exquisite nightlife scene through his one and only successful novel. At his 65th birthday, Jep faces a revelation from his past, leading him to further examine his opulent, esoteric lifestyle. Directed by rising filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino and starring Toni Servillo, critics have hailed the film as a contemporary update of Fellini’s classic La Dolce Vita, exploring the intoxicating effects of the upper-class life in Rome. In Italian, with English subtitles."
