Seven Beauties

Monday, December 18

Film Suburbs & Beyond

This darkly comic picaresque follows Pasqualino, a dim-witted thief obsessed with honor and driven by machismo. An attempt to preserve the virtue of one of his seven homely sisters begins a long, desperate journey that will take him through an insane asylum, the Italian Army, and a concentration camp. With Seven Beauties, Wertmüller became the first woman to receive an Academy Award nomination for Best Director, one of four earned by the film.
