35mm print! Shawn Levy, author of
Dolce Vita Confidential
, will be on hand to introduce the film.
DIVORCE ITALIAN STYLE (1961)
was an international star on the strength of "La
Dolce Vita" when he starred as a lecherous, murderous Sicilian nobelman
in this dark and delicious comedy from director Pietro Germi. The story
of a man who wants to arrange for his wife to take a lover so he can
kill her and marry his cousin, this won an Oscar for Best Original
Screenplay and scored nominations for Mastroianni and Germi. It's
stylish, ribald and wicked good fun!
