Australian Premiere

Adapted from her own acclaimed stage play by Emma Dante, The Macaluso Sisters is an affecting tale of both the anger and affection that binds family together.


Maria, Pinuccia, Lia, Katia, Antonella. The childhood, adulthood and old age of five sisters born and raised in an apartment in the suburbs of Palermo, where they live alone, without their parents. A home that bears the marks of the time that passes, as do those who have grown up in it and still live there.

Twelve actors portray the five sisters across three generations in this deeply poignant story about time, and memory, and the people who remain long after their passing.

“The skill with which Dante adapts her own play, marshalling three sets of actors playing the same characters at three different phases of life, and brings it soaring to fully cinematic life is remarkable.” - Variety
