Five young men linger in post-adolescent limbo dreaming of adventure and escape from their small seacoast town. They while away their time spending the lira doled out by their indulgent families on drink, women, and nights at the local pool hall. Federico Fellini's second solo directorial effort is a semi-autobiographical masterpiece of sharply drawn character sketches. An international success and recipient of an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay, I Vitelloni compassionately details a year in the life of small-town layabouts struggling to find meaning in their lives.

Criterion's DVD also includes an exclusive documentary featuring interviews with late actor Leopoldo Trieste and other actors, technicians, and scholars; the original trailer and newsreels from the time of the film's release; a collection of stills, posters, and memorabilia; and more.
