Cinema in Piazza: Up The Boot - The Wonders (Le Meraviglie)

When: Fri., July 12, 8-10 p.m. 2019

A semi-sweet, semi-autobiographical film about growing up in the 1990s on a ramshackle farm as the daughter of back-to-the-earth political activists. As surrogate parent to the younger children and heir apparent of the farm, 12-year-old Gelsomina (Maria Alexandra Lungu) knows how to manage the household and the money-making bees, while the encroachments of commercial farming come closer and closer. But she isn’t prepared for the almost magical apparition of Milly Catena (Monica Bellucci), the gaudily dressed host of a cheesy TV game show that Gelsomina finds herself desperate to win.

Price: $5-$18
