Sergio is a guileful businessman who manages a group of young escorts which he uses to bribe local politicians and authority figures. With a desire for increased political leverage, he sets his eyes on bigger game and makes it his duty to work his way into the ranks of a man with a notorious taste for both hedonism and corruption — Italy’s Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi.
The latest film from Oscar-winning auteur Paolo Sorrentino, director of The Great Beauty and Youth.
“Steamy sex, exotic dancers, cocaine sniffing and raucous poolside parties – the life and times of Italy’s scandal-tainted former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi would appear to be natural material for a biopic.” – The Guardian
