Paolo Virzì's sharp class drama - Italy's Oscars submission -
arrives on VOD, iTunes in advance of July DVD release
The New York-based film distribution company, announces that HUMAN CAPITAL, the critically acclaimed Italian drama released in the U.S. in January, premieres On Demand April 17th in advance of its DVD release in July.
HUMAN CAPITAL begins at the end, as a cyclist is run off the road by a careening SUV the night before Christmas Eve. As details emerge of the events leading up to the accident, the lives of the well-to-do Bernaschi family, privileged and detached, will intertwine with the Ossolas, struggling to keep their comfortable middle-class life, in ways neither could have expected. Dino Ossola (Fabrizio Bentivoglio), in dire financial straits, anticipates the birth of twins with his second wife (Valeria Golino, Rain Man). Meanwhile, his teenage daughter's relationship with hedge fund manager Giovanni Bernaschi's playboy son complicates an already tricky social dance of status, money and ambition. Paolo Virzì's taut character study deconstructs the typical linear narrative, observing transformative events from each character's perspective. The result is a nuanced account of desire, greed adn the value of human life in an age of rampant capitalism and financial manipulation.
Following its U.S. premiere at Tribeca Film Festival last year, where the film won star Valeria Bruni Tedeschi Best Actress honors, HUMAN CAPITAL enjoyed a nationwide theatrical release in January, 2015. The film is currently Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, and is available beginning April 17 on On Demand and digital platforms in advance of its release to DVD in July.
