My Big Gay Italian Wedding

Unclassified 18+ Scroll to content

Move over My Big Fat Greek Wedding, the big gay Italian boys are gonna give you a run for your OTT money in Alessandro Genovesi’s outrageously fun, award-winning rom com.

Baby-faced Antonio (Cristiano Caccamo) pops the question to his burly, bearded boyfriend Paolo (Salvatore Esposito) in their Berlin apartment just before Easter. So far, so cute, but things take an awkward turn when Antonio freaks out about bringing Paolo home to meet the conservative Catholic parents he hasn’t come out to yet.

Even as various hurdles are encountered, including an ex who can’t let Antonio go and a clingy new flatmate who comes along for the ride, this is pure joy from the get go.
