On the smaller screen at the **Florida Atlantic University Living Room Theater,** one can have an intimate experience with Italy's **Le Grande Belleza** (The Great Beauty).** Director Paolo Sorrentino tells the tale of Jep (Toni Servillo), a 65 year old man who is tired living "La Dolce Vita" culture since the 1960s. Having written an influential novelette decades ago, Jep lives a shallow life in which he has lived off the reputation of his book. Jep undergoes a spiritual revelation when he meets a nun (who is a similar age) who has lived a life of chasity and poverty.
