Starring Giancarlo Giannini, Fernando Rey, Shirley Stoler |

This darkly comic picaresque follows Pasqualino, a dim-witted thief obsessed with honor and driven by machismo. An attempt to preserve the virtue of one of his seven homely sisters begins a long, desperate journey that will take him through an insane asylum, the Italian Army, and a concentration camp. With Seven Beauties, Wertmüller became the first woman to receive an Academy Award nomination for Best Director, one of four earned by the film.

Shown in conjunction with the film course Swept Away: The Films of Lina Wertmüller, this screening will be introduced by the course’s instructor, Maurizio Giammarco, Ph.D.
