A man receives news from his aging mother in a little town that someone he once knew has passed away. A beautiful story unfolds about the man's childhood friendship with an old man who was the projectionist at the local theatre. Their bond was one that contained many highlights and tragedies, and shaped the way for a young boy to grow and move out of his rundown village to pursue a dream. If ever a movie came from the heart, it’s Giuseppe Tornatore's nostalgic Cinema Paradiso, winner of the 1988 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language film.
