ME AND YOU [Io e te]

Director Bernardo Bertolucci returns to the screen for the first time since 2003 with a wistful tone poem about the passions and yearnings of youth. Disaffected teen Lorenzo, pimply, sullen and self-conscious, shares a Rome townhouse with his divorcée mom. Going through the motions of preparing for a school ski trip, Lorenzo secretly stashes junk food provisions in the basement, planning to ditch the trip and enjoy his own staycation. The unexpected arrival of his older junkie half-sister Olivia (Tea Falco), in need of a place to lie low and get clean, spoils his plans for solitude, but offers the opportunity for two needy souls to connect. Official Selection, 2012 Cannes, 2013 Göteborg, Rotterdam, San Francisco Film Festivals.
