France, Italy, Switzerland | 2011 | Alice Rohrwacher
This 2011 New York Film Festival selection was one of the best films at last spring’s Cleveland Int’l Film Festival. A 13-year-old girl, recently relocated (with her single mother) from Switzerland to distressed southern Italy, finds herself confronting a whole series of strange things (puberty, catechism class, her working mom’s frequent absence) in a strange land where the spiritual vies with the corporeal. “An uncommonly insightful portrait of nascent womanhood…Sublime.” –Time Out New York.
