NAME OF FILM: EUPHORIA
DIRECTOR(S): Valeria Golino
STARRING: Zendaya, Austin Abrams, Alexa Demie
GENRE: Drama Film
SYNOPSIS: Acclaimed leading men Riccardo Scamarcio and Valerio Mastandrea play Matteo and Ettore, two adult brothers living drastically different lives, in actor-director Valeria Golino’s quietly wrenching new drama. When Ettore, a public-school teacher and father of modest means, is diagnosed with an illness, he goes to stay with cosmopolitan Matteo in his sprawling Roman bachelor pad, and Matteo takes charge of overseeing his brother’s medical care. Between appointments with doctors and visits from Ettore’s wife (Isabella Ferrari) and his mistress (Jasmine Trinca), the brothers reckon with long-unresolved tensions and unspoken resentments, and face the implications of Ettore’s failing health, against the thrumming backdrop of the sunny Roman cityscape.
