La prima cosa bella

Paolo Virzì Italy, 2010

Michael Harbour's rating of the film The First Beautiful Thing

Marvelous film about the life of a family. Full of choices and changes which sometimes work out but often don't and the joys, regrets and reversals which result. Never seems forced or contrived as the family grows from the early 70s through 2009 or so.
