Paolo Sorrentino’s YOUTH took three top awards at the 28th European Film Award winning best European film, director and actor for Michael Caine. Last time out, amazing Italian dIrector Paolo Sorrentino won an Oscar for the incredibly dazzling THE GREAT BEAUTY. He returns with YOUTH, starring the wondrous Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel, “an emotionally rich contemplation of life’s wisdom gained, lost and remembered—with cynicism harping from the sidelines, but as a wearied chord rather than a major motif”—Jay Weissberg, Variety. Set in a stunning Swiss spa, YOUTH follows Fred, a great retired conductor and composer, and Mick, a still lively film director, two old friends. While Fred has no plans to resume his musical career despite the urging of his loving daughter Lena (Rachel Weisz), Mick is intent on finishing the screenplay for what may be his last important film for his muse Brenda (Jane Fonda). And where will inspiration lead their younger friend Jimmy (Paul Dano), an actor grasping to make sense of his next performance? Set against a sprawling landscape of unforgettable sights and intoxicating music, YOUTH asks if our most important and life-changing experiences can come at any time—even late—in life. “YOUTH is a voluptuary’s feast, a full-body immersion in the sensory pleasures of the cinema”—Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter.
