Review: L'Immensità

Emanuele Crialese’s L’Immensità (which translates as The Immensity) memorably captures the look and feel of 1970s Roma with this family drama, which stars a magnificent Penélope Cruz in the role of a loving mother but suffering wife who eventually collapses in a mental breakdown. Her slow decline is witnessed by the vigilant eyes of her pre-teen daughter, Adri (Luana Giuliani), who goes by ‘Andrew’ and feels she (he, from here on out) was born in the wrong body, a reality unacceptable in that time and place.
