Back on the big screen to celebrate both its 60th anniversary and Felliniís centenary, La Dolce Vita is an enchanting fable of fame and folly.

Federico Felliniís exquisite tale of celebrity casts an adoring yet critical eye towards '60s Rome. Set over seven decadent days, the film follows Marcello Mastroianniís philandering journalist, pursuing a happiness thatís always just out of reach.
