Rome, April 18 - Italian actress and filmmaker
Valeria Golino has won a seat at the Cannes Film Festival with
'Miele' (Honey), her directorial debut.
Best known to English-speaking audiences for roles in Rain
Man and the Hot Shots! films, Golino will represent Italy in the
Un Certain Regard category, which runs parallel to the top-prize
Palme d'Or competition and aims to promote rising talent.
"I'm happy and content," Golino told ANSA. "I'm also proud
to be in the same festival with other Italians who are great
friends and great artists".
Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino is in the running for
the Palme d'Or with his film The Great Beauty (La Grande
Bellezza).
Golino, born to an Italian father and a Greek mother in
Naples, broke onto Rome's film scene after she was discovered
by Italian film icon Lina Wertmueller, who cast her in A Joke of
Destiny (1983) when she was still in highschool.
Three years later she won the Best Actress award at the
Venice Film Festival for Storia d'Amore.
Miele is the story of a young Italian woman who devotes her
life to alleviating the pain of others, "even when they make
dramatic decisions," according to the film synopsis.
The Cannes Film Festival takes place May 15-26.
