The Girl from Tomorrow
Marta Savina, 102 minutes, drama, Italian and French with English subtitles, 2022, Italy.
“Primadonna” follows Lia, a strong headed who does not fit in with the rigid mindset of 1965 Sicily. What starts off like a fairytale with Lorenzo soon turns into a nightmare, with Lia confronted with having to accept the common tradition of the reparatory marriage. However, Loa, for the first time in Italian history, will defy all social expectations and engage a personal and legal battle for self-determination.
