Italian star Jasmine Trinca gives a compelling performance as FORTUNATA, aka Lucky, a working class single mom with dreams of opening her own hairdressing salon in Rome. Feisty, brash but unlucky in love, FORTUNATA’s struggles are complicated by the presence of Franco (Edoardo Pesce), her abusive ex-husband, and the conflicts of the otherwise charming business partner in waiting, Chicano (Alessandro Borghi), a heroin addict whose mother is battling dementia (the iconic Hanna Schygulla in a special cameo). Shot with lush, colorful cinematography in a sundrenched Rome and weaving in memorable tunes by The Cure and Elton John, FORTUNATA is a compassionate, heartwarming look at a woman defying fate and turning her luck around.
