Romeo Is Juliet

ROMEO E' GIULIETTA

Famous theater director Federico Landi Porrini (Sergio Castellitto) is looking to cast Romeo and Juliet for the play that will mark the height of his fame and conclude his career with a bang. While Vittoria (Pilar Fogliati) stands out at the auditions, her shady past prevents her from being chosen, but she is determined to get a role in the show. With the help of her make-up artist friend (Geppy Cucciari), the young actress decides to fully show her talent by trying for Romeo under a false name, Otto Novembre. 
She doesn’t find it too complicated to play someone else, both on stage and behind the scenes, not even when her boyfriend (Domenico Diele) is chosen to play the role of Mercutio. However, playing a man allows her to discover new things about herself and the people around her.
