‘The Leopard’ Plot Summary
Based on the novel by Giusuppe Tomas di Lampedusa, The Leopard chronicles the changes to Sicilian life and society during the Risorgimento in 1860. Don Fabrizio Corbera, the Prince of Salina, and his family have long lived a life of privilege, largely isolated from the poverty experienced by the masses due to government corruption which pervades the island. The film traces with a slow and inexorable rhythm the waning of the noble home of the Prince’s family and the rise of the wealthy ex-peasant Don Calogero Sedara.
