Sneak Italian preview of the year's most eagerly-awaited film on Friday 3 October

IN THE CUT, the eagerly-anticipated thriller produced by Nicole Kidman, directed by Oscar winner Jane Campion and starring Meg Ryan hits Italy’s screens on 12 December

At midday on Friday 3 October VIRGILIO  IS EXCLUSIVELY showing a sneak Italian-language preview of IN THE CUT, the eagerly-awaited thriller produced by NICOLE KIDMAN, directed by Oscar winner JANE CAMPION and starring an unusually sensual MEG RYAN in a career-defining role.

Adapted from Susanna Moore's bestseller, the story is about Frannie (Meg Ryan), a college lecturer with a perfect but passion-free life, who unwittingly becomes caught up as the only potential witness in a murder investigation to find a serial killer of young women in New York.
Swept up by the thrill and excitement that has been missing from her life for so long, Frannie finds she is dragged in deeper and deeper. She starts a passionate relationship with MALLOY (Mark Ruffalo), the detective who has been assigned to the murder case... but the excitement starts to get a little out of hand as Frannie might just turn out to be the next victim…

MEG RYAN’s performance is a revelation. There is already talk of her receiving her first-ever Oscar nomination for this tour-de-force. These are just some of the things people are saying about the film in America:

GRAHAM FULLER / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS “Exceptional, intelligent a stunner... I was on the edge of my seat the whole time... Meg Ryan really can act... and this is her best role yet. Jane Campion is a genius.”
GABE DEPPOLET / W “… fabulous, it left me speechless... all the actors are exceptional, it is all simply perfect.”
JILL DEMLING / VOGUE “I adored MEG RYAN in this film – she’s incredible. This is her best ever performance.”

For two weeks VIRGILIO is exclusively previewing the film in Italian. In The Cut begins its Italian run on 12 December.
