A Five Star Life

Margherita Buy (The Red and the Blue) leads this Italian romantic drama as Irene, a hotel fanatic who travels the world visiting, experiencing and judging these five-star locales – casting feedback on everything from the etiquette of the staff to the clarity of the wine served. But as articulate as her critiques are, she’s unable to turn that same critical eye on herself and her personal life.

Putting her seemingly content protagonist through very low-key emotional crises, Tognazzi gently explores what it means to be unmarried, middle-aged and female.
