Journalist Jep Gambardella (the dazzling Toni Servillo, Il divo and Gomorrah) has charmed and seduced his way through the lavish nightlife of Rome for decades. Since the legendary success of his one and only novel, he has been a permanent fixture in the city's literary and social circles, but when his 65th birthday coincides with a shock from the past, Jep finds himself unexpectedly taking stock of his life, turning his cutting wit on himself and his contemporaries, and looking past the extravagant nightclubs, parties, and cafés to find Rome in all its glory: a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty.

Prof. Ernesto Virgulti, Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures; Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies; Brock University will be introducing the film.

Short Term 12 is told through the eyes of Grace, a twenty-something supervisor at a foster-care facility for at-risk teenagers. She is passionate and tough, a formidable caretaker of the kids in her charge – and in love with her long-term boyfriend and co-worker, Mason.
Grace and Mason struggle to help Marcus, an intense, quiet kid who is about to turn 18, cope with the difficulty of having to leave the facility. But Grace’s own difficult past, added to the surprising future that suddenly presents itself, throw her into unforeseen confusion, which is made all the sharper by a new arrival, Jayden, a gifted but troubled teenage girl with whom she has a charged connection.

This film is being shown during Mental Health Awareness week. There will be an opportunity after the movie for a discussion and question and answer session with two members of McMaster’s Department of Psychiatry about the issues the film raises.
