I Am Love  (Io Sono L’Amore)

Please join former Drexel Professor Ramesh Kajaria on Sunday, September 25th at 2:00 pm to watch and discuss this Oscar and Golden Globe nominated film from Italy. In Italian, rated R, 2009. Registration not required, but seating is limited.

If you are unable to attend the viewing, you may check the DVD out from the library. (If you are not a member of the Burlington County Library System, check with your own library to see if they carry it or can get it for you.)

Synopsis: Oscar winner Tilda Swinton shows off her multilingual skills in director Luca Guadagnino’s atmospheric melodrama in which family dissension, unbidden desire and other tensions bubble to the surface during the patriarch’s birthday party. When the seemingly picture-perfect Recchi clan gathers at the family villa to celebrate the great old man, the veneer of civility quickly falls away in this Golden Globe nominee for Best Foreign Language Film in 2011.
