Acclaimed director Matteo Garrone (Dogman, Gomorrah) reimagines the classic Italian children’s fable for a new generation in this lovingly crafted adaptation, starring Academy Award winner Roberto Benigni alongside child actor Federico Ielapi. In a little village in Tuscany, struggling carpenter Geppetto (Benigni) decides to carve a boy puppet in an attempt to earn some extra money. To his joy and astonishment, the puppet (Ielapi) comes to life. Geppetto adopts him as a son, and names him Pinocchio. Pinocchio’s child-like curiosity leads him on a journey of discovery, encountering some out-of-this-world creatures along the way.
