Viaggio Sola (A Five Star Life)

at NYU DC Campus Auditorium

Irene is a high-class hotel critic in her mid-40s who travels to the most exclusive resorts. She spends her time writing up elaborately detailed reports about the things the staff is doing wrong. Whether timing the room service, taking the temperature of white wine or inspecting dust levels with lint gloves, her voyages are far from relaxing, while her home life is pretty much nonexistent -- except for a longstanding friendship with handsome organic food purveyor Andrea.
