EFP Shooting Stars 2013: Luca Marinelli


Luca Marinelli

Italy

Credits: “The Solitude of Prime Numbers” (2009), “Nina” (2012), “Every Blessed Day” (2012)

Drama usually gives young actors more chance to display their chops than comedy, but Marinelli was a revelation in Paolo Virzi’s sweet romantic character study “Every Blessed Day,” playing a bookish eccentric saved by the love of a good, though demanding woman. “His hypnotic, innocent look — a major and rare quality for an actor — illuminates ‘Every Blessed Day,’ where his acting is very understated and unlike anything else we have seen,” said the jury.
