A box office sensation upon its theatrical release in Italy, comedian Paola Cortellesi’s black-and-white directorial debut finally comes to New York at this year’s Open Roads. Set in the 1940s, the film stars Cortellesi as Delia, a working-class mother who is a victim of domestic physical and psychological abuse at the hands of her military veteran husband (Valerio Mastandrea). Delia suffers in silence while going about her daily routine, but a mysterious letter arrives giving her the courage at last to change the circumstances of her life. An astounding film that is as empowering as it is humorous, There’s Still Tomorrow movingly depicts the plight and grace of, in the director’s own words, “the many ordinary women who have built, unsuspectingly, our country.”
