The late reign of Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is the focus of Paolo Sorrentino’s (The Great Beauty) latest film.

Sergio is a guileful businessman who manages a group of young escorts whom he uses to bribe local politicians and authority figures. With a desire for increased political leverage, he sets his eyes on bigger game and makes it his duty to work his way into the ranks of a man with a taste for both hedonism and corruption – the notorious Silvio Berlusconi.

Full of satire and scandal – biopics don’t come more unauthorised than this.

“Sometimes whimsical, sometimes gruellingly sordid, sometimes wayward in those Fellini-esque departures and dreamlike epiphanies of which Sorrentino has made himself such a master.” ★★★ – Guardian

“A richly inventive, ferocious feast of satire and vulgarity.” – The Hollywood Reporter
