CONVERSATION PIECE

GRUPPO DI FAMIGLIA IN UN INTERNO
Italy | 1974 | Luchino Visconti

CONVERSATION PIECE

Burt Lancaster, unforgettable in Visconti’s The Leopard, also stars in the Italian director’s penultimate film. He plays a retired and retiring American professor and art collector whose solitary, civilized life in an opulent Roman palazzo is disrupted when he rents the upper floor of his house to a vulgar Italian Countess (Silvana Mangano) and her loud, reckless, boorish clan. But once the shock subsides, the old academic finds himself lured back to life by his tenant’s mysterious young boy toy (Helmut Berger). Cleveland revival premiere. In English. Blu-ray. 122 min.

Special admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8. No passes, twofers, or radio winners.
