With memorable performances from Nicolas Cage and Penelope Cruz, director John Madden (Shakespeare In Love) creates breathtaking imagery set amid the Italian occupation of Greece during World War II. When Captain Antonio Corelli (Cage) and his Italian army company arrive on the unspoiled island of Cephallonia, strong-willed young Pelagia (Cruz) and the other villagers meet these uninvited guests with resentment. But as the Italians’ charm and passion for life win their acceptance, Pelagia and Corelli begin to develop a bond that transcends the divisons of nationality and circumstance. But as the harsh reality of war ultimately crashes upon the idyllic shores of Cephallonia, Capt. Corelli must face the possibility of leaving the island and losing the woman he has come to love. This handsome adaptation of Louis de Bernières’ best seller also features Christian Bale and John Hurt.
