'Fortunata' review starring Jasmine Trinca

'Fortunata' review | Hollywood Reporter: "Jasmine Trinca gives a prize-winning star performance in Italian director Sergio Castellitto’s emotionally charged tale of blue-collar female empowerment.
Translating into English as “lucky”, the title of Sergio Castellitto’s overheated Italian melodrama is clearly ironic. But there is otherwise little subtle or ambivalent about Fortunata, whose star Jasmine Trinca picked up the Best Actress prize in the Un Certain Regard section in Cannes yesterday. Shot in the same working-class Roman suburb as Pasolini’s neo-realist classic Mamma Roma, this compassionate character study strains to hit the same kind of female-centric heights as vintage Pedro Almodovar, but it falls short and ends up something of a soapy hot mess instead."
