SUMMERTIME
L'ESTATE ADDOSSO
2016, Rai Com, 103 min, Italy/USA, Dir: Gabriele Muccino

This engaging drama from director Gabriele Muccino (THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS) follows former classmates Marco (Brando Pacitto) and Maria (Matilda Lutz) as they travel from Rome to San Francisco, where a mutual friend has arranged for them to stay with a gay couple (Taylor Frey and Joseph Haro). “SUMMERTIME contains a coming-out drama of moving complexity. The film flows effortlessly between ‘gay’ and ‘straight’ drama - and part of its message is that the moment you’ve made that distinction, you’ve fallen into the trap of the old bigotry.” - Owen Gleiberman, Variety.
