All Screwed Up

Monday, November 27

Film Suburbs & Beyond

Country boys Gigi and Carletto arrive in Milan in search of fortune, only to find their dreams waylaid in the absurd and impossible rat race of urban life. Simultaneously an antic slapstick comedy, a poignant social drama, and a bawdy farce, Wertmüller’s whirlwind satire follows these misfits and their friends through work, crime, romance, and the rest of the turbulent forces of life in the Italian working class.

(NR) Italy – 1 hr 45 min – with subtitles
