The late reign of Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is the focus of Paolo Sorrentino's (The Great Beauty) latest film.
Sergio is a guileful businessman who manages a group of young escorts whom he uses to bribe local politicians and authority figures. With a desire for increased political leverage, he sets his eyes on bigger game and makes it his duty to work his way into the ranks of a man with a taste for both hedonism and corruption - the notorious Silvio Berlusconi.
Full of satire and scandal - biopics don’t come more unauthorised than this.
