First Beautiful Thing
La Prima Cosa Bella (The First Beautiful Thing) follows a strong and optimistic mother raising her two children against all odds. Throughout grief and pain she teaches her family to remain open and loving and to cherish the little joys in life. This beautiful and touching comedic drama from acclaimed Italian director Paolo Virzi (La Bella Vita) is filled with unforgettable and emotional true-to-life performances.
"...a shameless, and, damn it, I cried anyway." Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"Comedy and poignancy weave together in Mr. Virzi hands, but the maudlin meter only occasionally goes into the red zone." - The New York Times
