Captain Fantastic by Matt Ross wins the “BNL Audience Award” in Rome

captainfantasticCaptain Fantastic by Matt Ross wins the “BNL Audience Award” at the eleventh edition of the Rome Film Festival. The film was presented in the Official Selection of the Festival, in collaboration with the autonomous and “Alice nella Città” competition. The percentage of votes was 4.7%.
Piera Detassis said at a press conference: “A film that I really love. It won the utopia, an important issue that speaks a lot to people. Joyful utopia. The audience always reward this kind of narrative stories. Utopia is the idea of breaking the rules, the barriers to exit from the symbolic event. We are in the city of cinema and the numbers are very encouraging: more than 18% on social; 134 of 313 screenings were in town. I leave you with my favorite phrase from the movie Florence: someone will say that I did not sing well, but no one can say that I did not sing.”
The artistic director Antonio Monda is putting in evidence the attention of the foreign press: “Two days ago the New York Times opened on Moonlight wondering: is this the best movie of the year?”.

It is the news a few hours ago that the Golden Awards jury gave nominations to two of the most acclaimed films of the festival: Moonlight and Manchester by the Sea.
