Gomorrah won the Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Fest in May, and IFC Films soon after scooped up the rights to US distribution of the film. The film is an inside look at Italy’s modern-day crime families, as seen through the eyes of rising lieutenants in the global criminal organization. The film is based on a non-fiction expose of Italy’s criminal underworld by Roberto Saviano, that apparently is so hard-hitting, mob threats have forced him into hiding.
The Matteo Garrone-directed film’s cast includes Salvatore Abruzzese, Simone Sacchettino, Salvatore Ruocco, Vincenzo Fabricino and Vincenzo Altamura.
