The Son's Room
DIRECTOR: NANNI MORETTI
CAST: NANNI MORETTI, LAURA MORANTE, JASMINE TRINCA
Introduced by and Q&A with Nanni Moretti.
Temporarily setting aside his hybrid filmmaking practice to concentrate on a relatively straight dramatic narrative, Moretti produced one of the most gut-wrenching depictions of the desolation that follows a death in the family ever committed to film, playing the father in a middle-class family that’s capsized by the loss of their teenage son. At once exacting, unsentimental, and undeniably cathartic, and wholly deserving of its Palme d’Or coronation.
The Son's Room is screening as part of the series Nanni Moretti.
