Silvio Muccino (My Best Enemy) directs and stars as Andrea, a wealthy 20-something who is pulled away from his slacker lifestyle in Rome to visit his dying father – a man who abandoned his son and now wants to reconnect before he dies – in Nairobi.
When he arrives in Kenya, however, Andrea finds his father is in a coma. He also learns he has an 8-year old half-brother, Charlie (Michael Rainey Jr.). Andrea`s girlfriend, played superbly by Isabella Ragonese (Her Whole Life Ahead) who delivers a touching and nuanced performance, is unimpressed by the responsibilities this discovery is going to add to their carefree lives. Italian-English actor Greta Scacchi is brilliant as Andrea`s icy mother.
In this warm-hearted film about geographic and personal journeys, audiences will especially fall for the natural performance given by the young Rainey Jr. as Charlie. Another World is based on the novel by Carla Vangelista, who also co-wrote the script with Muccino.
