THE SOLITUDE OF PRIME NUMBERS [La Solitudine dei Numeri Primi]
Writer/director Saverio Costanzo and Paolo Giordano adapt the latter's award-winning novel, an odd, anti-romance about two damaged souls who form a powerful spiritual connection, united in their aloneness. Criss-crossing timelines from adolescence to adulthood, the story follows sickly, artistically inclined Alice (Alba Rohrwacher) and tormented math whiz Mattia (Luca Marinelli) as they navigate difficulties in their family, school and work lives, with events of the past having profound influence on the present. Pasinetti Award for Best Actress, 2010 Venice Film Festival; Official Selection 2010 Toronto Film Festival.
