Tommaso (Riccardo Scamarcio, also in this year’s Loro) has a comfortable life in Rome as an aspiring writer and is in a steady relationship with his boyfriend Marco — a life he has kept secret from his family. When he's called back to his hometown in Southern Italy to help run the family business, he decides to reveal his homosexuality to his conservative family and hopefully be relieved of his business obligations in the process. But when his plans are thwarted, Tommaso gets stuck on the path that he was desperately trying to avoid. In Ozpetek's playful and heartfelt film, Tommaso isn't the only one struggling to navigate between la bella figura (a good public image) and his true desires.
