Mini Review - The Great Beauty

The Great Beauty (out Jan 23) is the story of a wealthy Italian socialite who starts to rethink his life following his 65th birthday celebrations. A few subplots left me scratching my head but this is a film to be enjoyed as much for its beautiful imagery as its reflective storyline. It reminded me of Luca Guadagnino’s 2009 release, I Am Love. Grade: B+.
