CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com audio film review for a 2022 foreign language film distributed in the U.S. by Chicago’s Music Box Films … and featuring Penélope Cruz … entitled “L’Immensitá.” In select theaters beginning May 19th, see local listings.

Clara (Penélope Cruz) and her husband Felice (Vincenzo Amato) relocate to Rome, while raising three children. Their oldest child, nicknamed Andri (Luana Giuliani), was born female but desires a male’s life, and since this is the early 1970s the only explanation he can come up with is that he’s an alien from outer space. As Felice grows most distant from the family, Clara turns inward, and allows an acute depression to affect her profoundly, and the family starts to crumble as a result.
