The late reign of Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is the focus of Paolo Sorrentinos (The Great Beauty) latest film.Sergio is a guileful businessman who manages a group of young escorts whom he uses to bribe local politicians and authority figures. With a desire for increased political leverage, he sets his eyes on bigger game and makes it his duty to work his way into the ranks of a man with a taste for both hedonism and corruption - the notorious Silvio Berlusconi.Full of satire and scandal - biopics dont come more unauthorised than this.Like Berlusconi himself, Loro is bloated and overstuffed, but Sorrentinos film is a compelling mixture of the whimsical and the sleazy, the hedonistic and the sad. The Trumpian parallels are also impossible to ignore. ★★★★ Empire MagazineSometimes whimsical, sometimes gruellingly sordid, sometimes wayward in those Fellini-esque departures and dreamlike epiphanies of which Sorrentino has made himself such a master. ★★★ Peter Bradshaw - The GuardianScreening as part of our BEACON Season celebrating British World Cinema.Director: Paolo SorrentinoCast: Toni Servillo, Riccardo ScamarcioRun time: 151 minsItalian with English subtitles
