On the heels of his poorly received period drama Napoleon and Me, director Paolo Virzì draws inspiration from Michela Murgia's popular novel to compose this surreal and bittersweet snapshot of life in contemporary Italy. Marta (Isabella Ragonese) is a cum laude college graduate who has finally entered into the real world. Though she's eager to land a job in publishing, a series of dead end interviews ultimately prove so disheartening that Marta winds up working as a live-in babysitter for harried single mom Sonia (Micaela Ramazzotti). During her down time, Marta begins temping at a call center run by a merciless micro-manager (Sabrina Ferilli) with an eagle eye for details. At first Marta was fairly forgiving of her humorless boss, catty co-workers, and pushy customers, though before long the reality of her misery becomes much too obvious to deny. Later, Marta crosses paths with a fiery union worker (Valerio Mastandrea) his passion and charisma inspires the disgruntled worker to divulge all of the company's unsavory business practices. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
