Balancing Act - Free Film Screening  8pm -  9.30pm

When husband and father of two Giulio (Valerio Mastandrea) upsets his comfortable life by having an affair, his wife Elena (Barbara Bobulova, The Ages of Love) cannot forgive him. Taking full responsibility, Giulio decides to move out, promising that he will continue to support the family financially despite his meagre monthly salary. He is faced with the problem of where to move; his friends have their own problems without having to support him, apartments are too expensive and he resists staying with his mistress. Finding a one-room, shared-bathroom flat, Giulio plunges deeper and deeper into poverty as he struggles to pay for his separation, borrowing more and more money before hitting rock bottom. Told with irony and humour amid the tragedy, this is a moving film about the thin line between having it all and having nothing. The beautifully written screenplay is realistic, relevant and also very touching, with the stoic and sympathetic character of Giulio at its heart.
