'Lobster Dinner' Director Gregorio Franchetti - Columbia University NY

  • Cecilia Linares

Lobster Dinner is a short film directed by Gregorio Franchetti from Columbia University NY. "Left home alone for dinner, a 12-year-old kid steals his parents’ live lobsters and takes them to the single mother of a working class school friend, only to claim in her house a place that goes well beyond that of a dinner seat." Entirely set during a mundane school-day evening in Rome, Lobster Dinner is about the journey of misunderstandings, betrayals and loss of innocence of two twelve-year-old friends from different social classes who are put at odds by their respective quests for manhood.
