A prize-winner at the 2016 Venice Film Festival, Worldly Girl is set in the world of Jehovah’s Witnesses, a religious movement that is especially strong in Italy. Giulia (Sara Serraiocco) is a bright teenager, dedicated to a religion that requires her to preach from door to door and spread the word. Continuing her studies is not an option. Then she meets Libero (Michele Riondino), a young, working-class man who has just been released from prison. Her instinct is to offer kindness, support and a job. The feelings that develop between them bring Giulia into conflict with everything she has been taught never to challenge.
