It can be shocking to see a contemporary actor in a foreign film. It’s even more shocking if the film has the overt sexuality of something like The Dreamers. Pitt starred in this Bernardo Bertolucci film and shocked and entertained audiences. He plays an American student who bonds with a brother and sister over their shared love of sex, film, and politics. It’s a genuinely engaging film, and does feature a major glance at Michael Pitt's body.
