LA RAGAZZA DEL MONDO (Worldly Girl) (2016)
Marco Danieli| 100 mins
What happens when a Jehovah’s Witness falls in love with a “worldly person”? And what does it mean to be a worldly person? This complicated love story takes place within the clashes between reality and the closed world of religious sects and speaks to anyone who has experienced a forbidden relationship. Giulia lives in the closed world of the church of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, which fiercely excludes those on the outside. Libero lives in the world of everyone else, those who make mistakes, who get by trying again, and who love unconditionally. When Julia meets Libero, she discovers the possibility that another destiny may be open to her, with everything to choose — even if the choice leads to being completely cut off from the world she belongs to. Libero will give Giulia the biggest gift of love of all: the freedom to belong to the world, a new world with a bright future.
