Academy Award Nominee THE GREAT BEAUTY comes to Slaughter Lane Starting Tomorrow

One of the most visually dazzling and entertaining films of the year THE GREAT BEAUTY focuses on journalist Jep Gambardella, who has charmed and seduced his way through the lavish nightlife of Rome for decades.

He's an aging socialite who has lived off of the fame of writing a successful novel in his twenties who retired into a comfortable life writing cultural columns and throwing parties in Rome.

After his 65th birthday party, where he is feted at his plush apartment overlooking the Coliseum, he walks through the ruins and city streets, encountering the various characters, reflecting on his life, his first love, and sense of unfulfillment.

Beautiful, ambitious and heartbreaking THE GREAT BEAUTY is a mesmerizing feast for the eyes and the soul.
