December’s film I Am Love (Io sono l'amore) from 2009 is a romantic drama from Italian director Luca Guadagnino. With expert, understated performances (particularly Tilda Swinton as the matriarch of a wealthy Milanese family), the director’s elegant visual style tells a story that could easily have veered off into a soap opera. Instead, the film becomes the stuff of grand opera. The agitated John Adams score only adds to its intensity. The film is available for free streaming on Kanopy and Hoopla.
