Description: <p>This sharp comedy revolves around a very simple subject: having children in Italy today. Or rather, having a second child, to be more specific. Sara (Paola Cortellesi) and Nicola (Valerio Mastandrea) are a happy couple. She&rsquo;s a restaurant health inspector, he runs a fishmonger&rsquo;s; they pay their bills and they have a quiet six-year-old daughter whom they bring along to dinners with friends. The balance in their lives is disrupted, however, by the arrival of their second child. In this case, &ldquo;1 plus 1 doesn&rsquo;t make 2, it makes 11.&rdquo; Their love, of course, multiplies, but so does their fatigue. Sleepless nights, crying around the clock, selfish grandparents and unlikely babysitters all combine to transform the couple&rsquo;s life into a living hell, while commitments relating to their firstborn become increasingly pressing. Tragicomic scenarios ensue. In Italian with English subtitles. All ticket holders must provide proof of COVID vaccination.</p>
