Cinema Paradiso — October 2016

Luke, Tito and Will discuss Tito’s recommendation, “Cinema Paradiso.” The 1998 Italian drama was written and directed by Giuseppe Tornatore. The Bildungsroman, or coming of age story, typically deals with someone’s formative years, but Tito argues people are always changing, adapting or growing up. Tito also references Thomas Wolfe’s “Look Homeward, Angel” and wonders whether or not you have to leave home in order to fully realize your potential.

For the month of November, Will nominates “The Truman Show,” which is on Netflix.
