1 POST-GAZETTE, APRIL 8, 2011 Page5 COOLIDGE CORNER THEATRE PRESENTS Benvenuto, amici! In honor of the 150th anniver- sary of the Risorgimento (Resurgence), the historic process which forged the modern country of Italy from a collection of individual sov- ereign states, the Coolidge Corner Theatre will present a one-night-only screening of Luchino Visconti's stun- ningly restored 1963 epic The Leopard (II Gattopardo) on Monday, April 11 at 7:00 pm. The Leopard is based on Giuseppe di Lampedusa's fine novel, visually charting the mood of change that the cascade of social revolution brought to one aristocratic family as seen through the eyes and heart of its patri- arch. In one of cinema's great screen performances, Burt Lancaster, as Prince of Saline, reluctantly watches his beloved nephew (Alain Delon) leave to join the rebels, then makes his peace with the changing times by marrying him off to a beautiful bourgeois, played by a smoldering Claudia Cardinale. The climatic 45- minute ball scene, created with astonishing attention to detail -- down to chang- ing real candles in the chan- deliers every hour during filming -- is an emotional tour-de-force, described as "one of the most moving meditations on individual mortality in the history of the cinema." The Coolidge is proud to showcase this sublime res- toration, blessed by the film's original cinematogra- pher, the great Giuseppe Rotunno, and funded by Mar- tin Scorsese's Film Founda- tion and Gucci. With music by Nino Rote, this is a sen- sual feast movie lovers will never forget. The film will 'be introduced by the Consul General of Italy in Boston, Giuseppe Pastorelli. This presentation is part of the Coolidge Corner Theatre's Big Screen Classics series.
