“The Hand of God” — Italy’s official submission for the Academy Award for Best International Feature Film — is nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture: Non-English Language. It has been winning awards at prestigious film festivals around the world and is being hailed as one of the best films of the year by critics.

From Academy Award-winning writer and director Paolo Sorrentino (Il Divo, The Great Beauty, The Young Pope) comes the story of a boy, Fabietto Schisa, in the tumultuous Naples of the 1980s.

“The Hand of God” is a story full of unexpected joys, such as the arrival of football legend Diego Maradona, and an equally unexpected tragedy.

Fate plays its part, joy and tragedy intertwine, and Fabietto’s future is set in motion.

Sorrentino returns to his hometown to tell his most personal story, a tale of fate and family, sports and cinema, love and loss.
