Rocco and His Brothers will screen from a 4K digital restoration.
An operatic masterpiece from an artist working at the height of his powers, Rocco and His Brothers is a sprawling tale of family told with both melodramatic flair and neorealist grit. In one of his greatest performances, Alain Delon plays the eponymous Rocco – one of five brothers who move with their mother from Sicily to Milan, hoping to extract a better life from the prosperity of the north. As the siblings each attempt a new path in their new home, violent tensions begin to flare between Rocco and his brother Simone when they fall for the same woman. Revered by Martin Scorsese and a clear influence on decades of crime epics that followed it, Visconti’s film is an ambitious feat filled with unforgettable images and searing emotional power.
