"The Great Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The intelligently observed and The Great Beauty posterstaggeringly beautiful Italian foreign-language Oscar nominee is about life, death and the search for the things that give meaning to both." And it opens Friday at the Orpheum Theatre in Fairfield. This is exciting, and is to be seriously considered by film fans as a big screen must-see. Especially when it's actually showing on a big screen near you - right here in Fairfield's cultural district! "Dazzlingly ambitious, beautifully filmed, and thoroughly enthralling, The Great Beauty offers virtuoso filmmaking from the great Italian director Paolo Sorrentino." "It's not often that we feel ravaged by a film, but The Great Beauty is a ravager, a spectacular odyssey of emotion and intellect and sensuality through the rich, contradictory and self indulgent world of The Eternal City." The raves for this Best Foreign Language Oscar nominated film go on and on. "The Great Beauty is drop-dead gorgeous, a film that is luxuriously, seductively, stunningly cinematic."- Kenneth Turan, L.A. Times

Also hear about new releases, the box office and what we've seen, on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions". Fridays at 12:30 PM, again Sunday mornings at 11:30. "Beyond there is what lies beyond. And I don't deal with what lies beyond. Therefore... let this novel begin. After all... it's just a trick. Yes, it's just a trick..."- The Great Beauty<
