The film is based on an eponymous piece of theatre written by the controversial and admired director, playwright and actress. The screenplay was written by Emma Dante with Elena Stancanelli and Giorgio Vasta and focuses on a matriarchal family of five sisters, Maria, Pinuccia, Lia, Katia and Antonella. We follow the family, born and raised in an apartment on the top floor of a building on the outskirts of Palermo, through childhood, adulthood and into old age. A home that bears the marks of time passing, just like the very family that grew up and still live there. This is the story of five women, a family, of those who leave, of those who remain and of those who resist.
Le sorelle Macaluso stars Alissa Maria Orlando, Susanna Piraino, Anita Pomario, Eleonora De Luca, Viola Pusatieri, Donatella Finocchiaro, Serena Barone, Simona Malato, Laura Giordani, Maria Rosaria Alati, Rosalba Bologna and Ileana Rigano. The film is a Rosamont and Minimum Fax Media production with RAI Cinema, with the contribution of MIBAC and support from the Sicilia Film Commission. The film will be released in Italian theatres in 2020 by Teodora Film.
