This month’s movie: “The Life Ahead (La Vita Davanti a Sé)”
After a 70-year acting career and winning her first Academy Award in 1962, Sophia Loren is in the Oscar conversation once again for her starring role in The Life Ahead. The film is about Madame Rosa (Loren), a Holocaust survivor, who babysits the children of sex workers in her Italian town. And at the heart of the story is her bond with one of the children, Momo (Ibrahima Gueye). The Life Ahead is an adaptation of the 1975 French novel La vie devant soi, or The Life Before Us by author Romain Gary. Directed Edoardo Ponti, Loren’s son.
Palomar, 2020, 93 min., PG-13
