From acclaimed director Giuseppe Tornatore comes Malèna, an unforgettable story of a boy's journey into manhood amid the chaos and intolerance of World War II.
In a sleepy Italian village, the most beautiful woman in town, Malèna (Monica Bellucci), becomes the subject of increasingly malicious gossip among the lustful townsmen and their jealous wives.
