From the incredible soundtrack to the lush countryside to the romantic coming-of-age story, it’s no wonder why Bernardo Bertolucci’s Stealing Beauty is a cult favorite.

She enchants the villa’s eclectic residents, including a dying artist named Alex (Jeremy Irons), and infuses the place with her youthful sensuality.
