Loose Cannons (2010) – Comedy, Drama - 110 minutes
Director: Ferzan Ozpetek

Set in Lecce, a sandstone city in the heel of the Italian boot, this film focuses on the extended Cantone family: a large, traditional southern Italian family operating a pasta-making business since the 1960s. Tommaso, the youngest son of the Cantones, lives in Rome, where he studies literature and lives with his boyfriend. On a trip home Tommaso decides to tell his parents the truth about his sexual orientation, but when he is finally ready to come out in front of the entire family, his older brother Antonio ruins his plans.

With his Almodóvar-esque themes of family secrets, oddball character parts, bittersweet tone, and sunny outlook, the director uses comedy to lift the lid on a multi-generational household coming to terms with a rapidly modernizing world, and the broadening social acceptance that comes with it. Winner Special Jury Mention Tribeca Film Festival 2010. In Italian with English subtitles.
