Quietly moving coming-of-age movie from Italy at Murphy Library Thursday, March 28 at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Posted on: March 25, 2013

Thirteen-year-old Marta has returned to Italy with her mother and sisters after ten years away in Switzerland.  It is one thing to be back with family, but another when she feels like a stranger as she walks the streets of the town where she was born. 

The Murphy Library is showing Corpo Celeste, Film Movement’s quietly moving coming-of-age story filmed in Calabria, Italy, this Thursday at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. in Italian with subtitles in English.   Running time is 100 minutes.  The film is not rated but may be appropriate for upper high school levels.

Marta is enrolled in a class at the local Catholic church to study for her confirmation, and in hopes she will make some friends.  Instead, she finds herself with many questions and no one to answer them….yet. 

Call the library at 837-2417.
