Rocco and his Brothers

Friday, November 12 - Sunday, November 14, 2010

The uncut and uncensored 180-minute version of Luchino Visconti’s masterpiece! A chronicle of family loyalty and disintegration, it is one of the most powerful and emotionally charged movies ever made. Rosaria Parondi and her five sons journey north to Milan to seek a better life but the industrial north proves just as unforgiving as the desolate south. Simone becomes the first brother to find success – but his career as a boxer flounders when he meets Nadia, a beautiful prostitute. When Simone’s possessiveness drives Nadia away, she falls in love with his younger brother, Rocco. The lovers set in motion a shattering chain of events for which the family’s traditional values leave them unprepared. ROCCO AND HIS BROTHERS is the most dramatic and spectacular film of the director’s astonishing career. Visconti’s sweeping operatic style of filmmaking influenced the work of directors Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola. – Milestone Films
