Released in 1953, Roman Holiday quickly set the standard for the modern romantic comedy. With a perfect cast headed up by Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn in her American debut, this charming beauty of a film was a box office hit and went on to earn 10 Oscar nominations, including for Best Picture.
Celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, there’s no better time to revisit the timeless story of a modern-day princess (Hepburn) who rebels against her royal obligations and sets out to explore Rome on her own. When she meets an American reporter (Peck), he feigns ignorance of her identity in the hopes of obtaining an exclusive story – but his plan quickly falters when they inevitably fall in love.

With her son off to college and her husband unfaithful, suburban American mother Kristin (Toni Collette) has not been living her best life. So when news arrives from Italy that her estranged grandfather has passed away and, as his only surviving grandchild, she must attend his funeral, she jumps at the chance to get away.
But things take a turn for the unexpected when the Kristin discovers that she has inherited the family business – and it’s not a vineyard. Guided by the family’s trusted consigliere (Monica Bellucci), Kristin sets out to defy everyone’s expectations (including her own) as head of the most powerful Mafia family in Calabria.
