MEDIA REVIEWS

"Catherine O'Rawe's Stars and Masculinities in Contemporary Italian Cinema is an original and ground-breaking approach to stars and masculinity in the post-2000 Italian cinema. The author skillfully blends analyses of individual performances and star bodies with a consideration of different film genres. The book is especially useful as an introduction to a new generation of male actors and recent films that treat a contemporary crisis of Italian masculinity. O'Rawe's book should be required reading for everyone who loves the Italian cinema." - Peter Bondanella, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Comparative Literature, Film Studies and Italian, Indiana University, USA

"O'Rawe's analysis of a wide range of films released in Italy since the turn of the millennium provides a fascinating reflection on male stardom, the anxieties of contemporary masculinity, and the enduring dominance of the homosocial paradigm in Italian culture and society. This book will be an indispensable point of reference for all future studies of the representation of gender on Italian screens." - Aine O'Healy, Professor of Italian, Loyola Marymount University, USA
