Today brings us the multiple award-winning Italian fantasy-drama “Happy As Lazzaro” (2018), the story of a meeting between young Lazzaro, a member of a sharecropper family, and a nobleman who asks him to help him orchestrate his own kidnapping. Lazzaro exudes such an aura of goodness that he is often mistaken for being simple-minded, while he and his family are continually taken advantage of by the landowner, the evil Marchesa Alfonsina de Luna. Recipient of 14 wins and 42 nominations at international film festivals, including Best Screenplay at Cannes 2018, and Best Feature at Chicago. Written and directed by young (b.1982) up and coming director Alice Rohrwacher.
