Giovanni (Antonio Albanese) and Monica (Paola Cortellesi) come from very different places. He is an affluent social planner who lives in downtown Rome, while she deals every day with a challenging working class district on the edge of the city. Their paths would not normally cross, except that their teenage kids start dating, coercing these two single parents to combine forces in order to keep a watchful eye on the relationship. Part rom-com, part class satire, this caustic comedy is a delight.
