From Academy Awarding winning director Paolo Sorrentino comes Youth, a film about two longtime friends vacationing in the Swiss Alps. Oscar winning actor, Michael Caine plays Fred, an acclaimed composer and conductor, who brings along his daughter (Rachel Weisz) and best friend Mick (Harvey Keitel), a renowned filmmaker. While Mick scrambled to finish the screenplay for what he imagines will be his last important film, Fred has no intention of resuming his musical career. The two men reflect on their past, each finding that some of the most important experiences can come later in life. (Rated R, 1 hour 58 minutes)
"Sumptuous, sincere and built on aging bones, Youth is a wonder of a film, a look back at life's sprawling possibilities, dark corners and aspirations."- Tom Long, Detroit News
"This is a work of gorgeous, eye-popping visual inventiveness with a radically bananas plot."- Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
