Alba Rohrwacher

Alba Rohrwacher

Alba Rohrwacher first broke through as an actress in her native Italy, where she received numerous prestigious national awards. Her first acting experience was in the theatre. She first appeared in front of the camera in supporting roles, and her first more significant role came with L'amore ritrovato (2004). Yet her acting career was truly launched by the critically acclaimed role of a mentally disturbed daughter in a drama named Giovanna's Father (2009). She appeared in a similar role one year later, in the adaptation of Paolo Giordano's bestseller, The Solitude of Prime Numbers (2010), where she portrayed a traumatised girl who, forced by a tragedy, must face a pointless search for her place within modern society. She presented another of her many strong acting performances in Come Undone (2010), where she expressed contradictory emotions left by a secret love almost without words. One of her latest roles, which was highly personal for Alba, is related to The Wonders (2014) which was written and directed by her older sister, Alice Rohrwacher. In the poetic film, which consists of mosaics of complicated family relationships, Alba portrayed the mother of a large family that is ruled by a despotic husband. The film, inspired by the sisters' childhood and set near the place where they grew up, was awarded the Grand Prize of the Jury at Cannes 2014. Alba's latest triumph so far came at last year's international film festival in Venice where she was awarded for the leading role in Hungry Hearts (2014) by Italian director Saverio Constanzo.
