HAPPY AS LAZZARO

Dir. Alice Rohrwacher (Italy, 2018, 130mins 12)

A kind-hearted sharecropper in rural Italy befriends a rich nobleman.  This Cannes winner is a beautiful, mysterious film combining magical realism and social commentary where events take a very strange turn in a modern Brothers Grimm fairy tale.  On the critics' list as one of the best films of the year.
