About the film:

Alice (Paolo Cortellesi) lives a phenomenally pampered life, surrounded by servants and every gadget imaginable. Then one day, her somewhat shady husband is killed in a car accident, and Alice learns the horrible truth: the family is completely broke, all the opulence based on dubious loans tinged with some underworld connections. Alice must find a way to support herself and her son, but she’s a bit lacking in the marketable skills department, until she discovers the wonderful world of escort services. Although still quite attractive, Alice needs some training in what seems to have become a highly-professionalized field in contemporary Italy. So she turns to Eva, a long-time pro, and soon she’s off to a new career...and and an Italy she barely knew existed. In the best tradition of Italian comedy,Escort in Love offers pointed political criticism inbetween its explosions of laughter.

This screening will be preceded by the short film GOD'S GOT HIS HEAD IN THE CLOUDS, produced, written and directed by Gianluca Sodaro. Original music by Angelo Badalamenti. Director in attendance.
