“THE GREAT BEAUTY,” directed by Paolo Sorrentino, 2013. This drama, which pays homage to the work of Federico Fellini, won the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film and is nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Toni Servillo plays Jep Gambardella, a journalist who wrote a successful novel decades ago and hasn’t found much inspiration since. He wanders around Rome’s high society and literary circles — of which he is a fixture — dispensing wit and reflecting on a dazzling past that can never be caught. Rated R. 2:22

Showing at: Portland Museum of Art, 6:30 p.m. Friday; 1 p.m. Saturday; 2 p.m. Sunday
