Must end Thursday, April 29!
Italian master Marco Bellocchio’s (Fists in the Pocket, My Mother’s Smile, Good Morning, Night) stunning political melodrama tells the virtually unknown story of Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini’s (Filippo Timi) secret first marriage. An ambitious and ruthless young man, he woos and then abandons the woman who launched his career—and gave him his first child — as he plots his rise to power.

NR, 128 Minutes, Italian and German
IFC Films, Italy/France

"A dazzler! Grandly cinematic… age has diminished none of Bellocchio’s sting."
- Scott Foundas, LA Weekly
