Padre Padrone

1977 Rated NR 1hr 53m

At the tender age of 6, Gavino Ledda (Saverio Marconi) is taken out of school by his abusive father (Omero Antonutti) and forced into the life of a Sardinian shepherd. But his illiteracy and his father's cruel oppression only spur Gavino to strive for success as a writer and linguist. Packing an emotional punch, this gripping drama -- which won multiple awards at the Cannes Film Festival -- is based on Ledda's autobiography.
