Gomorra (Lakeside Theatre)

Matteo Garrone’s Gomorra is a stark, shocking vision of contemporary gangsterdom, and one of cinemas most authentic depictions of organized crime. In this tour de force adaptation of undercover Italian reporter Roberto Savianos best-selling expose of Naples Mafia underworld (known as the Camorra), Garrone links five disparate tales in which men and children are caught up in a corrupt system that extends from the housing projects to the world of haute couture. Filmed with an exquisite detachment interrupted by bursts of violence, Gomorrah is a shattering, socially engaged true-crime story from a major new voice in Italian cinema.
