A hidden corner of Rome that no tourist will ever see, speaks of the Eternal City better than any tour guide ever will. Fortunata  is a strikingly well acted drama with exceptional leads in Jasmine Trinca and Stefano Accorsi. It bears witness to the fortunes of a courageous single mother in the peripheries of Rome.
