    Inspired by a letter Italian novelist Elsa Morante sent to her friend, LE PUPILLE is a magical fable about a group of mischievous young Catholic schoolgirls during an imaginary wartime. Unfolding over the Christmas holiday, the orphaned girls find themselves blessed with a scrumptious red cake from a generous countess and must evade Mother Superior’s (Alba Rohrwacher) watchful eye for a taste of decadence. Alice Rohrwacher (HAPPY AS LAZZARO, AFI FEST 2018), with her signature whimsical touch, crafts a joyously playful tale about childhood desire, greed and freedom. –Anna LiRead More »
