Italian comedy follows an aging writer and playboy as he moves to seek out an intellectually-stimulating personal existence.

ABSTRACT
Jep Gambardella, an Italian journalist enjoying unfettered access to glamorous parties hosted by the city's most elite social circles ever since the career-making success of his only novel, decides to abandon his desirable existence at the age of sixty-five to discover all the splendor in Rome that money and privilege can't buy. The Great Beauty is Jep's story, following our protagonist as he travels around Rome searching for the same sense of wonderment that had inspired him to write so long ago. Won an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
