The Sicilian Girl

Rated NR 115 minutes 2009

Powerful Italian drama shows what happens when a determined, hot-tempered young woman named Rita Atria (played beautifully by Veronica D’Agostino) from a Mafia-ridden Sicilian village, circa 1985, avenges the deaths of her father and brother by going into the government’s witness protection and telling what she knows. And she knows everything. A major part of the screenplay – by director Marco Amenta, Sergio Donati, and Gianni Romoli – is the resistance by the authorities toward Rita herself, as an unsophisticated, lone woman from the impoverished South. Nice work also by actors Gérard Jugnot and Francesco Casisa as the head prosecutor and Rita’s Mafioso boyfriend, respectively (115 min.).
