With the release date of January 27 getting closer, the official website for Lost in Florence is now live. The movie, starring Dalton as Eric Lazard, is the tale of a former football player who tries to escape his failures at home by visiting his cousin, Anna, in Italy. Anna, played by Stana Katic, gives Eric some sage advice and welcomes him into her life in Florence. Through her, Eric is introduced a tight-knit community, and throws himself into a new challenge – the brutal sport of Calcio Storico.
In addition to showcasing the traditional Florentine sport, the movie focuses on Eric’s growing feelings for Stefania (Alessandra Mastronardi), and the complications that their relationship brings to the close group of friends. The rivalry between Eric and his teammate Paolo (Alessandro Preziosi) is highlighted in the trailer, and promises to be one of the integral themes of the movie.
Lost in Florence is one of two films starring Dalton that will be released next month. The Resurrection of Gavin Stone is slated for release January 20th, with Lost in Florence scheduled to be released a week later on January 27. In addition to a limited cinematic release, the movie will also be made available on VOD the same day.
