Synopsis

Tilda Swinton stars in this drama by Italian director Luca Guadagnino. Set among the upper classes in turn-of-the-millennium Milan, the film opens with a formal lunch party in which ailing patriarch Edoardo Sr (Gabriele Ferzetti) celebrates his birthday by passing the family business over to his son Tancredi (Pippo Delbono) and grandson Edoardo Jr (Flavio Parenti). Tensions soon begin to show beneath the smooth, controlled veneer of the Recchi family as Tancredi's wife, Russian-born Emma (Swinton), succumbs to the inelegant forces of passion and unconditional love.
