Tommaso, the youngest son of the well-to-do Cantone family, thinks he has the perfect way to escape working in his family’s pasta factory: telling his father he’s gay. Little does he know that someone else will beat him to the punch in Ferzan’s Ozpetek’s latest dissection of family, love, and personal liberation. Though Nonna, the matriarch of the Cantone clan, advises her relations to follow their own dreams, most of them feel beholden to the family’s business and reputation. Gently satirizing this large bourgeois family while creating a memorable panoply of characters, Ozpetek has made a film full of humour and heart.
