Quotes

[first lines]
Lucy: [narrating] We all have to grow up... eventually. My sister Claire, however, did not agree. She was a normal kid except somehow never stopped believing in magic and fairy tales and true love, which basically made her a magnet for creeps.
Claire: [fending off a boy] Get off me!
Lucy: Yeah, ouch. Luckily, we were super popular. Except not really. I was never what you'd call a sweet child, and Claire... Claire had problems.

For fans of Italy and Fellini films
25 March 2018 | by bettycjungSee all my reviews

3/24/18. If you love Italy and Fellini, you will enjoy this quirky coming-of-age film. Solo is the 20 year-old daughter of single mom Bello and niece of aunt Rajskub. Overprotected all her life, she is suddenly forced to grow up when Bello discovers she is dying from cancer and can't face the fact of not being able to protect Solo from that reality. Solo goes to Italy in search of the director Fellini and while there loses a lot of her innocence that Bello can no longer protect her from. Along the way you will get to enjoy great Italian scenery in several cities, interspersed with Fellini clips and interactions between Bello and Rajskub as they deal with Bello's health issues and learning about what was so fascinating about Fellini's film.
