This time Paolo Sorrentino’s ‘The Great Beauty’ is showing as part of the Cinecity Brighton Film Festival on Saturday 22nd November at 6pm. The venue is Duke’s At Komedia.
‘The Great Beauty’ (2013) is a visual love letter to Rome. Protagonist Jep, ageing journalist and playboy, navigates through the lavish nightlife of the city where he has been a permanent fixture in social circles, but when his sixty-fifth birthday coincides with a shock from the past, he finds himself unexpectedly taking stock of his life. Turning his cutting wit on himself and those around him and looking past the extravagant nightclubs, parties and cafes to find Rome in all it’s glory: a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty.
The inspired menu and carefully matched Bombay Sapphire cocktails truly enhance the film using taste, aroma and texture to heighten the viewers’ sensory experience of the film’s most famous scenes.
