I Am Love is an intense, gorgeous and sensitive drama about a wealthy Milanese family in the midst of shifting balances of power. Emma (Tilda Swinton) is the center of the story, the porcelain-perfect wife of a textile king. An adoring and attentive mother, Emma has adopted the quietly restrictive rules of her husband’s family as her own. But she surprises herself by having a passionate, sensuous affair with Antonio, a talented chef and close friend of her son—and changes their lives forever. Roger Ebert says of I Am Love, “AN AMAZING FILM. It is deep, rich, human.” PROVOKR readers can watch it here for free.
