Michael Caine is in search of ‘Youth’ in first trailer from ‘The Great Beauty’ director’s follow-up


Nothing says youth like a film starring Michael Caine.

The first trailer for Youth, or The Early Years, hit the web on Saturday. The film is director Paolo Sorrentino’s follow-up for the Oscar winning, The Great Beauty. It is his second English language film to this point.

Sorrentino has amassed a large cast with Caine leading Harvey Keitel, Paul Dano, Rachel Weisz, and Jane Fonda. The film follows Fred (Caine) and Mick, two old friends, who are on vacation in an elegant hotel at the foot of the Alps. Fred, a composer and conductor, is now retired. Mick, a film director, is still working. They look with curiosity and tenderness on their children’s confused lives, Mick’s enthusiastic young writers, and the other hotel guests.

While Mick scrambles to finish the screenplay for what he imagines will be his last important film, Fred has no intention of resuming his musical career. But someone wants at all costs to hear him conduct again.

The cinematography is gorgeous and the shots seem to resemble The Great Beauty just a little bit. It will be interesting if this film takes with American audiences after Sorrentino’s previous English language film, This Must Be The Place, was not all-together loved by critics and audiences. But the cast is fantastic, and this could be a role that could generate some awards buzz for Caine depending on how well it goes over when it makes it’s debut overseas.

Youth does not have a release date yet, but screens in Italy starting May 21.
