Watch: Trailer for Paolo Sorrentino’s ‘Youth’

ROME – Italy’s Indigo Films has released its teaser/trailer for Paolo Sorrentino’s buzzed-about “Youth” (La Giovinezza), the Italo auteur’s English-language follow-up to 2014 Foreign Language Oscar-winning “The Great Beauty,” which which it shares music by contemporary American composer David Lang.

“Youth,” which is tipped for Cannes, stars Michael Caine as a retired orchestra conductor vacationing in an Alpine resort who receives an invitation to perform for Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. Cast also includes Paul Dano, as a still-working film director also staying at the resort, Harvey Keitel, Rachel Weisz, Jane Fonda, and Rumanian model Madalina Ghenea who plays Miss Universe.

If selected, “Youth” will mark Sorrentino’s sixth film in the Cannes competition, after “The Consequences of Love” (2004), “The Family Friend” (2006), the jury prize-winning “Il Divo” (2008), “This Must Be the Place” (2011) and “The Great Beauty” (2013).

Medusa will release “Youth” in Italy in an unspecified date in May. Wild Bunch has taken rights in Germany and Spain from Pathe International, which is selling. StudioCanal has taked rights for the UK.
