It’s been ten years, but guess who’s back at work! Sophia Loren is on the streets in Italy filming La Vita Davanti a Se (The Life Ahead) with her son Edoardo Ponti directing. She plays a holocaust survivor who bonds with a 12 year old Sengalese immigrant boy. Sophia, 84, has been working 10 hour days, and admits her son is a “perfectionist” and won’t let her leave until she gets each scene “just right.”
