La Strada
  • West End

La Strada (The Road) is one of the true masterpieces of modern cinema, winning the Academy award in 1957 for the movie starring Anthony Quinn.

The story of wide-eyed Gelsomina, who is sold by her penniless mother to Zampano, a travelling sideshow strongman, unfolds as they journey through the Italian countryside performing for their keep. Their perilous road trip leads them to a ragtag travelling circus where they meet Il Matto the tightrope walker who rekindles Gelsomina's spirit with a new found confidence.
