Movie Details

A young woman is drawn into a strange confidence game after fate leaves her high and dry in this drama from filmmaker Alicia Scherson. Bianca (Manuela Martelli), who is in her late teens, and her younger brother Tomas (Luigi Ciardo), are devastated by the unexpected death of their parents, and are uncertain how they'll hold on to the apartment that has been their family home. Bianca takes a job with a hair stylist, and Tomas becomes a gofer at a fitness center. Neither job seems promising until Tomas strikes up a friendship with a pair of bodybuilders (Nicolas Vaporidis and Alessandro Giallocosta) who invite themselves into the family home. The bodybuilders are far better at looking after things than the siblings, and they also seduce Bianca while offering Tomas plenty of advice on the opposite sex. Before long, Bianca and Tomas discover the bodybuilders have an ulterior motive for being so helpful: they've hatched a scheme to swindle a former movie star, Mr. Bruno (Rutger Hauer), who has gone blind and rarely leaves his mansion. The bodybuilders wants Bianca to sleep with Bruno in order to gain his trust and find out how to get their hands on his money, but after spending time with Bruno, she finds herself too intrigued by the damaged but charismatic actor to cheat him. Il Futuro (aka The Future) was an official selection at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
