Woody Allen’s Italian-set tale of romance and adventure stars the man himself with Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penélope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page.

“I can’t think of a better way to kick off this year’s festival than with the original independent filmmaker himself, Woody Allen,” Los Angeles Film Festival director Stephanie Allain said. “It’s a true honour for Los Angeles to host the North American premiere of To Rome With Love.”

SPC will release the film in the US on Jun 22. The ten-day festival is scheduled to kick off on Jun 14.
