The Most Beautiful Wife 1970
In Sicily, as a Mafia boss leaves for prison, he advises Vito, a young man who's his potential successor, to marry a virtuous and poor woman. Vito's eye settles on Francesca, only 15, but lovely and self-possessed. Among her virtues are high self worth and forthright speech, so although she falls in love with Vito, she won't bow down to him. Believing he's losing face, he has his boys kidnap her and he rapes her.
Local custom dictates that she's now no longer a virgin and will have little choice but to marry Vito. Francesca instead goes to the authorities. Not only does her family refuse to serve as witnesses, the police doubt that Francesca will carry through with her complaint, an outcome that Vito is counting on. But even when alone and cornered, Francesca will not give in...
"The Most Beautiful Wife" is based on the true story of Franca Viola, a young Sicilian woman who, standing up against a forced abduction, rape and abuse by local mobsters in 1965, became to be seen as the embodiment of feminism and women’s rights in Italy.
