As the seventh edition of the Rome International Film Festival begins on 9 November, Wanted in Rome highlights the movies of interest to younger viewers.
The festival screens the world premiere of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2", the latest installment of the hugely successful adventure fantasy series directed by Bill Condon. The teenage vampire movie is one of the most expensive ever made, with a reported budget of over $130 million.
Another big premiere at the festival is the animated "Rise of the Guardians", a lively 3-D film about the Immortal Guardians who protect the world's children from the evil spirit Pitch. Directed by Peter Ramsey, the movie features the voices of Alec Baldwin, Jude Law, Isla Fisher and Hugh Jackman.
Both blockbusters are being screened in the Out of Competition category, while the Alice in the City section - the festival’s autonomous sidebar - is aimed entirely at a youth audience.
Other highlights include the world premiere of "Wreck-it Ralph", an animated comedy featuring the voices of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman and Jack McBrayer; Macdara Vallely's Irish/US co-production "Babygirl" which tells the bittersweet tale of a Bronx teenager that gets caught up in a twisted love-triangle; and "The Dandelions", a French language comedy by Carine Tardieu.
The festival runs from 9-17 November. For full details see festival website.
