Lauded Italian movie screens at Nenagh Arts Centre

Nenagh Arts Centre screens the well regarded Italian film ‘I Am Love’ at 8 p.m. on Thursday 16th December in the Town Hall in Banba Square.

I Am Love tells the story of the wealthy Recchi family, whose lives are undergoing sweeping changes. Eduardo Sr., the family patriarch, has decided to name a successor to the reins of his massive industrial company, and in so doing, surprises everyone by splitting power between his son Tancredi and grandson Edo. However, Edo dreams of opening a restaurant with his friend Antonio, a talented chef. At the heart of Tancredi’s family is his wife, Emma (Tilda Swinton), a Russian immigrant who has adopted the culture of Milan. An adoring and attentive mother, Emma’s existence is shocked to the core when she falls deeply in love with Antonio and pursues a passionate love affair that will change his family forever.

Selected for Sundance and Venice Film festivals, the film has been described as “an arresting film in many ways, displaying, in parallel with the Recchi family’s theatrical deployment of the trappings of wealth, its own bracing and astringent sense of technique. It’s a high-IQ picture … a gorgeously costumed and styled piece of work.”

If you go to see this film, you’ll give yourself a pre-Christmas treat. Tickets are €6 from www.nenagharts.com or at the door.
