Caterina in the Big City

Rome may be the Eternal City, but when a provincial teenager (Alice Teghil) moves there with her parents, she finds only impermanence. At school she's embraced by two warring cliques of gal pals, then falls out of favor with both, thanks in part to the meddling of her neurotic father (Sergio Castellitto). An accounting teacher inflamed by delusions of grandeur, he fires salvos at his students, the government, the well-to-do, and especially his long-suffering wife (Margherita Buy). Like the father, this dyspeptic 2003 coming-of-age story from Italy often seems on the verge of nervous collapse, veering from giddy adolescent romps to adult shenanigans and shrill political discord. Paolo Virzi directed. In Italian with subtitles. 106 min.
