No Hard Feelings

We’re in Montauk, summer hasn’t started yet and Maddie is already in a mess – her car has been impounded for unpaid fines, but without the car she can’t work as an Uber driver and supplement the salary she gets as a waitress, and without that extra money he can’t keep up with the property taxes on the house he inherited from his mother after her death… However, an ad on Craigslist seems to fit his (desperate) case: Laird and Allison, a rich couple New Yorkers with a house on the beaches of Montauk, seek “help” for their son Percy, in their view too inexperienced and unprepared to face life in college which will access in September. If Maddie can get him out of her shell, weaning him emotionally and sexually, she’ll get a Buick Regal in exchange. And so all her problems will be solved...

Indiana Jones has hung up his hat and has been teaching archeology at New York University for a few years now. While waiting for a divorce, which weighs like the mourning of his son, Professor Jones drags himself to work and into an ordinary life ‘shaken’ only by the noises of the neighbors. On the eve of the conquest of the Moon, he receives a visit from Helena Shaw, daughter of an old friend ‘killed’ by his obsession with him: the Antikythera machine, a mechanical device designed by Archimedes to find temporal holes. Half of the dial has been resting for years in the Indiana Jones archives, after he stole it from the defeated Nazis in 1944.

Mediating between the two positions is the Pope (Franco Nero) himself, who sends Amorth to Spain, where inside the abbey of San Sebastiano, according to the report of the presbyter Father Esquibel (Daniel Zovatto), a possession is in progress demonic...
