Lina Wertmüller: Five Beauties New Digital Restoration!

SWEPT AWAY

aka SWEPT AWAY…BY AN UNUSUAL DESTINY IN THE BLUE SEA OF AUGUST. TRAVOLTI DA UN INSOLITO DESTINO NELL'AZZURRO MARE D'AGOSTO
Italy | 1974 | Lina Wertmüller

SWEPT AWAY

When their boat breaks down, a Communist deckhand (Giancarlo Giannini) and the wealthy wife of the yacht’s owner (Mariangela Melato) find themselves stranded on an isolated Mediterranean island, where the class distinctions that separate them are reversed or removed. Criticized by many feminists, Lina Wertmüller’s famous film was remade, disastrously, by Madonna and Guy Ritchie in 2002. “By far the lightest, most successful fusion of Ms. Wertmüller’s two favorite themes, sex and politics.” –The NY Times. Adults only! Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 115 min.
