Come out, come out... to the gorgeous Italian coast for one hilarious family get together!

Our host is wealthy art dealer Tony (Fabrizio Bentivoglio) – a charming and chilled silver fox with a gorgeous holiday abode – who invites his two adult daughters to come stay. Then there’s Carlo (Alessandro Gassmann), a boardshorts-wearing widower from the south who runs a fish shop, who is heading to the same destination with his two sons, daughter-in-law, and grandson in tow. When Carlo and Tony tell their respective clans that they’re actually a couple, and planning on getting married - mamma mia!

Tony’s gorgeous holiday home is barely big enough to contain everyone’s meltdowns. There are accusations, tears, shouting and subterfuge. And that’s all before coffee is served! Can Carlo and Tony’s relationship rise above their respective clans’ dramatics?

This cheeky comedy – a hit at last year’s Frameline – will tug on the heartstrings, as well as having you cheering out loud for these two later-in-life lovers.
