The Hand of God

The Hand of God FINAL Play Button

From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino, comes the story of Fabietto Schisa, a boy growing up in 1980s Naples, Italy. Over the course of the film, he experiences heartbreak and liberation, coinciding with major events like the arrival of football legend Diego Maradona, the filming of a Fellini picture, as well as an unexpected tragedy. A story of loss and love, The Hand of God is Sorrentino’s most personal film to date, and a coming of age story like no other. 

This is a foreign-language film presented with English subtitles.
