The 5th day of the 74th Mostra del Cinema di Venezia is dedicated (again!) to old, and we could say ageless, glories. First Helen Mirren and Donal Sutherland presented “The Leisure Seeker” the first American movie of Italian director Paolo Virzì. It’s a bittersweet and unexpected road movie where the two aging and fragile looking actors are finding again their long lost love. Another legend, English dame Judy Dench is presenting the worldwide premiere of Stephen Frears’ “Victoria & Abdul” where she portrays Queen Victoria in a tale of friendship and religion.
