Maria (Margherita Rebeggiani) is a reserved teen. The boy she likes has just asked her to go to bed with him. She accepts but isn’t sure where to start, so her school friend Sergio (Luca Nozzoli) offers to give her a few sex lessons, leading to a special friendship. Sergio’s mother Francesca (Barbara Ronchi) learns she has a health issue but doesn’t feel the need to tell her husband Alberto (Andrea Sartoretti) about it, given that she’s been more or less invisible in his eyes for some time now. Francesca finds comfort in the arms of her best friend Debora (Thony), but their relationship soon blossoms into something new and unexpected. Francesca’s doctor Guglielmo (Fabrizio Bentivoglio) is suffering some sort of post-divorce apathy and the only person he likes spending time with, at night, is young sex worker Ana (Croatia’s Tesa Litvan) who, for her part, is falling in love with her sweet-natured baker contemporary Matteo (Enrico Borello); this young woman’s capacity for dreaming, in spite of everything, rouses Guglielmo from his torpor and inspires him to change tack.

Lasciarsi un Giorno a Roma
(Directed by Edoardo Leo | 2021 | 1h 56m)
Monday, April 24th @ 7:30pm

The film tells two love stories, similar but very different, against the background of a splendid and protagonist city. The capital becomes the romantic theater of the couple’s life: shaky, in love, exhausted but still evolving over time. The protagonists, in different ways, reflect on their lives to understand themselves and each other. Zoe and Tommaso, Elena and Umberto live their life as a couple in parallel, arriving at the moment of wondering if they are willing to move forward, evolve and try again or if the fear of breaking up is greater than that of remaining together. A manager and a writer, a mayor and a school principal collide on the screen and tell the beauty and difficulty of love in a cynical but also very profound way.
