A Summer Abroad: Cinema italiano

Most of us won't be sunning on the Amalfi coast or dining near the Trevi Fountain this summer, but this series helps you imagine a splendid Italian holiday. Made by Italian filmmakers and/or filmed in Italy, the selection of classics and new releases features such outstanding directors as Fellini, Visconti, and De Sica and spectacular scenery from Rome, Venice, and the Italian countryside.<br><br><strong>Ticket Package</strong><br>Save when you buy 10 tickets to use at any indoor<a href="http://www.wexarts.org/fv/index.php?seriesid=257"><em>Cinema italiano</em></a>screening.<br>$60 general public<br>$40 members, students, and senior citizens

Nominated for five Academy Awards The Talented Mr. Ripley was filmed against the backdrop of landmarks in Venice and Rome.

Matt Damon stars as Tom Ripley, a young man hired to travel to Italy and retrieve a wealthy man’s rambling son, Dickie Greenleaf, played by Jude Law. This simple task is quickly complicated as Ripley’s interactions with Greenleaf and his friends fuel a growing resentment among them. When Ripley commits an unpardonable crime, the ensuing chain of events forces him into a tangled world of identity theft and murder. The stellar cast also includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Cate Blanchett, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Based on a 1955 novel by Patricia Highsmith (Strangers on a Train). (139 mins., 35mm)

In the event of rain, the Wex Drive-In will be postponed til the next day (Friday). If it's still raining, the film will screen in the Film/Video Theater at 9 PM (without accompanying refreshments).
