With a stellar cast and a gentle touch, Turkish-Italian auteur Ferzan Ozpetek (FACING WINDOWS; STEAM: THE TURKISH BATH) explores the ways love shifts and redefines itself in long-term relationships when a handsome gay couple unexpectedly find themselves taking care of their friend’s two adolescent children. After 15 years together, Arturo (Ozpetek regular Stefano Accorsi, HIS SECRET LIFE) and Alessandro (Edoardo Leo) have hit a lull in their relationship, with their troubles boiling to the surface at their friends’ gay wedding.


When Alessandro’s best friend and former girlfriend Annamaria (Jasmine Trinca, AN ALMOST ORDINARY SUMMER) asks them to look after her kids for a while, Arturo and Alessandro’s world is thrown into hyperdrive. This new responsibility manages to bring out buried resentments alongside touching reminders of what made the two men fall in love in the first place. Warm and engaging, THE GODDESS OF FORTUNE splendidly showcases the true meaning of “chosen family,” juggling its interpersonal drama with a healthy dose of humor and heart. — Joe Bowman
