Cast & Credits

Synopsis

Based on the acclaimed novel by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, Sicily, during the 1800s. The aristocracy found itself being suffocated by a newly democratic fervour. Prince Don Fabrizio Salina tries to hold on to the past, but it appears that his glory days are waning. This is perfectly exemplified by his nephew Tancredi Falconeri and his wife-to-be Angelica. As the revolt gathers steam and begins to affect a real change, the aging prince must come to terms with the new world that surrounds him.
