True Colours


Young Christian Ferro is extremely talented as well as an unpredictable and rebellious football player and the pride of A.S. Roma. The excesses in the celebrity’s private life are starting to jeopardize a promising career. After his latest screw-up, the president of his team decides to assign him a personal tutor to help him to control his temper. Valerio is a shy and solitary professor, the exact opposite of the “champion.” Sparks will fly between the two at first, but soon their relationship will change both for the better. Talented Leonardo D’Agostini’s fine debut is an intelligent comedy that goes behind the scenes of one of the best-loved football clubs and will delight everybody.

In Italian with English subtitles. Accessible only in USA.

Family Admission is for guests who will be viewing the film with 2 or more household members. Thank you for your ongoing support during these trying times.

After you buy a ticket for the movie, you will receive a link to a virtual screen theatre and a code on the same day of the screening. The time and date for the next screening is June 25th at 6:00 PM (PT).

Important: You will receive an email* on Thursday, June 25th by 1:00 PM with information on how to access the film. To avoid programming interruption, please do not share links or passwords as they are unique per ticket.

Film Discussion: You will also receive a link to join us for a live discussion with Leonardo D’Agostini, Director of the film, which will be held on Sunday, June 28th at 11:00 AM. You will receive access information to this event by 9:00 AM Sunday, June 28th.

*Please note the email used during checkout will be the one to receive the access information.


You can purchase a ticket for this screening until 12:00 PM (PT) of June 25th, if tickets are still available. You will not be able to activate the unique code on the website provided before the time and day of the screening. The link will be available for 30 hours, from June 25th at 6:00 PM (PT) until midnight of June 26th. Also, if you activate the link and you forget about it or you fall asleep, just as if you're in a regular movie theatre, you will lose the opportunity to watch the movie! If you need to take a break, make sure to hit pause—you will have time to resume as long as you do it within the 30-hour timeframe.


Q. I bought a ticket and never received the link to view the film?
A. Both the link to view the movie and your unique code will be sent to you at 1:00 PM (PT) on the day of the screening. If you do not receive an email please email us at so we can resend you the email (also make sure to check your spam and/or promotion folders).

Q. When does the link expire to view the film?
A. You have from June 25th at 6:00 PM (PT) to midnight on June 26th to view the film.

Q. I received the film link but the film won’t play on my computer?
A. First, try an alternative browser. If that still doesn’t work, then you can email us at to troubleshoot any issues. We will try to be available to you even after business hours during this time.

Q. How do I screen the film on my TV from my computer?
A. Most platforms have a way to stream from computer to TV through your Firestick or Apple TV. There should be a computer icon on your TV system that can help guide you through that process. Another way to connect your computer to TV is through an HDMI cord that runs physically from one into the other. Make sure to be on the correct input or source when connecting to your HDMI cable.
