Film / I Vitelloni

I Vitelloni is a 1953 film directed by Federico Fellini that deals with a bunch of slackers and their supposedly carefree lives. One of them, Fausto, blows this when he leaves his girlfriend pregnant and is forced to marry her. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t try to seduce other women, though.

Fausto's friends try to be supportive while keeping their lifestyles: Alberto is supported by his mother and sister, Leopoldo writes a play, Riccardo tries to keep his singing act and Moraldo, Fausto’s brother-in-law, tries to get away from it all.

It was one of Stanley Kubrick's favorite movies.
