Roberto De Paolis / Italy 2017 / 1h54m / Digital / Italian with English subtitles
Cast: Selene Caramazza, Simone Liberati, Barbora Bobulova, Stefano Fresi, Edoardo Pesce.
After her strict Catholic mother confiscates her phone, seventeen-year-old Agnese (Selene Caramazza) steals another one, only to be apprehended by young security guard Stefano (Simone Liberati). Rather than turn Agnese in, Stefano lets her go. They go their separate ways, but soon their paths cross once more and a strong attraction develops. In the best tradition of Italian humanist cinema, Roberto De Paolis’ unassuming Rome-set romantic drama was one of the strongest European debuts of 2017.
