          In this new imagining of the iconic classic, Matteo Garrone returns to the authentic roots of the Pinocchio story. With this ground-breaking live-action film shot in stunning Italian locations, Garrone creates a rich fantasy world of mystery and wonder, filled with luminous, funn...y and touching moments. Academy Award winning actor Roberto Benigni plays Geppetto, an old woodcarver who creates a puppet. But something magical happens the cheeky puppet begins to talk and can walk, run and eat like any young boy. Geppetto calls him Pinocchio, and brings him up as his son. But Pinocchio finds it hard to be good. Easily led astray, he tumbles from one misadventure to another as he is tricked, kidnapped and chased by bandits through a fantastical world full of imaginative creatures from the belly of a giant fish, to the Land Of Toys and the Field Of Miracles. His loyal friend, the Fairy, tries to make him see that his dream to become a real boy can never come true until Pinocchio finally changes his ways.

When spirited young Frank, an evacuee from the London Blitz, is dumped into her care, his innocence and wonder awaken Alices deeply buried emotions. Alice learns that wounds may be healed, hope and second chances do exist, and any woman must defiantly be who and what she wants. From Britains Olivier Award winning writer/director Jessica Swale, Summerland inspires with daringly honest and contemporary themes an intensely emotional journey of womanhood and self-discovery, love and friendship.
