GOT TO HAVE YOUR STREET CRED!

The comic and tender heart of this film beats loud and clear through the serious story it tells. In a subtle way it says a lot about life, about relationships, about appearances and about today’s incredible changes in the structure of Italian life and the Italian family. And it does so with a beautifully sequenced script that keeps a smile on the viewer’s face and stimulates much rueful laughter.

Bruno Beltrame’s life has not turned out the way he expected.  He has given up his hopes of being a writer and his career as a high school teacher.  Now he ekes out a living as a ghostwriter for celebrities, his current client a porn star, and as a tutor for liceo students.

A student’s mother asks him to care for her son, Luca, a boy in a hoodie, who cares much more about his “street cred” (credibiltá di strada) than his studies.  Bruno refuses. The woman, desperate for an opportunity in a life that has hit a wall, reveals herself as an old love and Luca as his son.  For what takes place next, the question is – who teaches what to whom?

Important Notice:

The Cabrillo Bridge (sometimes called the Laurel Street Bridge) will be closed to vehicle traffic from January through mid-April of 2014 so that Caltrans can make seismic retrofits to the bridge. The bridge will remain accessible to pedestrians and bicycles.
