A Flat for Three

  1. Saturday, April 26, 2014 7:00 p.m.
Still image from the film A Flat for Three

Unreleased in the U.S.

Described as an “Odd Couple for the new millennium,” except here there are three divorced men who decide to share an apartment together in Rome. All three are drifting towards uncertain futures while still stuck in unresolved pasts. One (Verdone) is a record collector lost in a world of classic rock; another is a former film critic reduced to writing gossip columns, and the last tries to sell real estate as an excuse to meet women. Clearly a response to the economic and spiritual crisis gripping Italy, the film is one of Verdone’s most sharply observed comedies. In Italian language with English subtitles. (HD presentation)

Director/Actor Carlo Verdone is scheduled to be present.
