2. I Am Love

In this film publicity image released by Magnolia Pictures, Edoardo Gabbriellini (l.) and Tilda Swinton are shown in a scene from, "I am Love."

Tilda Swinton plays a Russian immigrant who married into a wealthy Milanese family in this lushly lyrical, superbly intelligent, romantic drama co-written and directed by Luca Guadagnino. One of the rare movies that makes your eyes swim without also clouding your mind.


Tilda Swinton stars in the Italian family drama, 'I Am Love'
