Newport Beach Film Festival to showcase an exclusive screening of Italian Cinema. On Tuesday, April 26th 2016 the 17th annual Newport Beach Film Festival will present its Italian Spotlight, an evening celebration of Italian cinema and culture. The event will feature the Orange County premiere of the highly acclaimed film Me, Myself and Her (Io E Lei), followed by a festive post-screening gala. Perhaps Italy’s first romantic comedy with a female couple at the center, Me, Myself and Her (Io E Lei) stars Sabrina Ferilli as happily out restaurateur Marina and Margherita Buy as Federica, a previously married architect whose fear of what others might think gives her pause about the relationship. With a light tone, this warm look at the everyday struggles of two people to build a life together strikes a universal chord. “The Festival continues a proud tradition of presenting the very best in Italian Cinema. Me, Myself and Her (Io E Lei) is a touching and heartfelt romantic comedy, with a twist. We are very excited to screen Maria Sole Tognazzi’s newest work,” stated Gregg Schwenk, CEO of the Newport Beach Film Festival.
