In this visually sumptuous film, Maria, a free-spirited Nobel Prize winner, lives surrounded by warmth and chaos in her family’s Tuscan villa while also fostering a secret flirtation with the much younger Egyptian man who runs a nearby seaside inn. After a terrorist attack in Rome, Maria stubbornly refuses to succumb to the hysterical fear and anti-immigrant sentiment that quickly emerge, but is unprepared for the public and personal havoc her defiance wreaks in this timely, exquisite portrait of an unforgettably, transgressive woman.
