Many of us know the work of Franco Zeffirelli from his lavish romantic settings of operas and his films like Romeo and Juliet, where he was among the first directors to use actors that were the age of Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers. Did you know anything about what made him who he was? Tea with Mussolini is a semi-autobiographical film that features a pantheon of stars - Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Cher, Lily Tomlin and more - and takes us back to a very dark time in history when the world was literally in peril. How does a young orphan growing up in the bosom of La Scorpioni, a cadre of women who think and have agency, come of age and survive in a world ripped apart? Join us for the last-millennium classic film, starting promptly at 6:30pm.
