ComingSoon is debuting an exclusive clip from the upcoming drama Italian Studies, starring Academy Award nominee Vanessa Kirby (Pieces of a Woman, The Crown). The movie will release on Friday, January 14, in select theaters and On Demand from Magnolia Pictures.
“Italian Studies is a lyrical film about dislocation, connection, and the elusive nature of identity,” reads the official synopsis. “While visiting New York City from her native London, writer Alina Reynolds (Kirby) inexplicably loses her memory and suddenly becomes unmoored and adrift on the streets of Manhattan with no sense of time or place — or even her own name. As Alina’s consciousness swings between imagined conversations, fragments of her own short stories and the bustling city around her, she finds an anchor in charismatic teenager Simon (Simon Brickner). Drawn to the lost woman, Simon soon introduces Alina to his free-spirited group of friends, and together they make their way through a disorienting cityscape full of life, beauty, and music.”

Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Adam Leon (Gimme the Loot, Tramps), the film also stars Simon Brickner, David Ajala, and Annika Wahlsten, with a score by Oscar nominee and Emmy-winning composer Nicholas Britell (If Beale Street Could Talk, Moonlight).
Italian Studies is produced by Brad Becker-Parton, Joshua Astrachan, Jamund Washington, Andrea Roa, and Jason Reif. Executive produces include Kirby, Lia Buman, Tim Headington, Ryan Heller, Michael Bloom, Maria Zuckerman, and Frederick W. Green.
