Lina Wertmuller in Swept Away

Swept Away

1974 R

A shipwreck lands a fiery upper-class Italian woman (Mariangela Melato) and her fetching yacht hand (Giancarlo Giannini) on a deserted island, where the absence of other distractions leads to heated discussion about politics, economics, race and gender. Their opposing views eventually lead to passion, but upon rescue, they must face the harsh realities of a society in which class makes all the difference.
