Join us for a wonderful evening of culture and film thanks to our partnership with the Istituto Italiano di Cultura, Sydney. Each month we will feature the very best of Italian Cinema here at Casula Powerhouse.

This month we have shifted from an in-person screening to an online screening. Book today and we will send you the film link to view the film on Monday 2 August.

The films are in Italian and will have English subtitles.

Plus this month we have a wonderful introduction by Dr Cristiana Palmieri - Research Affiliate, The University of Sydney
Reporter, FRED Film Radio.

Alice lives in a beautiful villa. She has a husband who makes a lot of money, a nine-year-old son and three servants who happen to be immigrants. She is superficial, haughty and racist. But everything changes the day her husband gets killed in an accident: the young woman suddenly finds herself debt-ridden. Forced to leave their magnificent house, she goes to live in a small apartment in a working-class neighbourhood.

To repay her debts she also has to find work. When she gets to know Eva, a call girl who works in the West End of the town, she follows her example. In parallel, during her free time, Alice meets a certain number of good people in her new area and becomes closer to a man named Giulio.

Actress Paola Cortellesi won the 2011 David di Donatello for Best Actress for her performance as Alice.
