Italian Film Festival Screening – Marin Showcase Theater, 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. 

Thirty somethings, who attended high school together get together and relive the past in the Italian film “Immaturi.”

“The Immature” (“Immaturi”), a sentimental comedy. What do three 38-year-olds have in common? Twenty years ago they were classmates, and close friends, then something happened and the trio broke up. Soon they’ll come together again, at least for a few days, as a result of a letter each receives from the Ministry of Education. The letter informs them that the Ministry has annulled their high school graduation exams, and they will have to take them again or face losing their professional titles. So, we see them all together again, like old times, yet they are aware that that the old days are over.
