Francesca and Nunziata

Directed by Lina Wertmuller

Sophia Loren, Giancarlo Giannini and Lina Wertmuller are reunited for this plush 19th century costume drama, based on the popular novel by Mara Orsini Natale. Francesca was a commoner married to a prince. When their young child falls ill they promise the Virgin that they will adopt an orphan if Federico (Raoul Bova) survives. At the convent, they choose the angelic young Nunziata (Claudia Gerini). Years later Federico and his adopted sister find themselves attracted to each other. + Lina Wertmuller in person We are pleased to welcome veteran director Lina Wertmuller (SWEPT AWAY, SEVEN BEAUTIES) for Q&A following the screening.
