I’ve been calling it “The Next Big Thing” and now it’s just “The Big Thing”. Being considered for an Oscar nomination and for a European Film Award nomination, Il Capitale Umano is the film to watch right now.
Il Capitale Umano is director Paolo Virzì’s grand-slam home run, a film based on a book that was begging to be a movie by author Stephen Amidon.
Stephen Amidon’s novel about upper crust Connecticut becomes Paolo Virzì’s story of upper crust northern Italy in this stunningly complex drama about money, families going haywire because of it, and a guy on a bike who, one dark snowy night, loses his life and brings theirs into glaringly sharp focus.
