VENICE REPORT: HUNGRY HEARTS


Italian director Saverio Costanzo's New York-set Hungry Hearts sounds to be a curious cross between romance and horror, starring Adam Driver and Alba Rohrwacher. Critics note the intriguing premise (and they're not wrong about that) and have good things to say about the film's opening, but the reviews are largely negative, with many noting that it goes downhill toward the end. You can read exactly what they think in these write-ups from John Bleasdale at CineVue, Deborah Young at The Hollywood Reporter, Robbie Collin at The Telegraph, Jay Weissberg at Variety and Peter Bradshaw at The Guardian.
