DON’T TELL– An Oscar Nominated Film!!
Based upon the celebrated novel La Bestia nel Cuore, DON’T TELL is the mesmerizing story of a woman’s journey into her past and the aftermath of confronting personal demons long hidden beneath the surface of her psyche. Sabina (Giovanna Mezzogiorno), a beautiful young woman who seemingly has it all–a supportive and loving boyfriend, a comfortable lifestyle, and a promising future. Sabina learns she is pregnant–typically a happy event — she finds herself haunted by nightmares, strange memories, and personal insecurities that send Sabina’s world spiraling out of control.
While avoiding her boyfriend Franco (Alessio Boni), Sabina flees to America where she stays with her brother Daniele (Luigi Lo Cascio) and his family. While staying with family, Sabina uncovers dark, disturbing truths that she begins to question her own sanity as well as life, love, and her future happiness, leading to an intense psychological climax that finds Sabina at a crossroads of redemption or destruction.
Directed and co-written by Cristina Comencini, DON’T TELL is adapted from her bestselling novel La Bestia Nel Cuore. Check out the website http://donttellfilm.com/
