With memorable performances from Nicolas Cage (Gone In 60 Seconds; Con Air; Leaving Las Vegas) and Penlope Cruz (Blow; All The Pretty Horses) acclaimed director John Madden (Shakespeare In Love) creates breathtaking imagery set amid the Italian occupation of Greece during World War II.
When Captain Antonio Corelli (Cage) and his Italian army company arrive on the unspoiled Greek island of Cephallonia strong-willed young Pelagia (Cruz) and the other villagers meet these uninvited guests with resentment. But as the Italians' charm and passion for life win their acceptance Pelagia and Corelli begin to develop a bond that transcends the divisions of nationality and circumstance! Then as the harsh reality of war ultimately crashes upon the idyllic shores of Cephallonia Capt. Corelli must face the possibility of leaving the island...and losing the woman he has come to love!
Also featuring Christian Bale (Shaft) and John Hurt (Crime And Punishment), you'll agree with critics everywhere who have cheered this winning adaptation of Louis de Bernieres' best-selling novel!
