Seasonal Special Happenings

Working Class Hero

When: Wed., July 22 2015

A kind, unemployed Italian man must make a living for himself in the only way he knows how, by finding as many temporary odds and ends jobs as he can. That character at the center of Intrepido is someone to whom we can all relate. The comedy stars Antonio Albanese as Antonio Pane, who in spite of his loneliness, family issues and economic difficulties, has an incredibly optimistic outlook on life. Though his life, from the outside looking in, seems like it should drag him down, he picks himself up and selflessly devotes time to his son, a struggling musician. The film is meant to be a portrait of modern life’s ups and downs as seen through the eyes of a middle-aged man with an astounding amount of self-respect. The movie was shown at several large film festivals, including the 70th Venice International Film Festival and the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, and was directed by Gianni Amelio, who's best known for his films, Lamerica and The Stolen Children. it screens at 7 p.m. tonight and at 7 p.m. on Friday at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Tickets are $9. (Manno)
