La strada (English: The Road) (1954) is an Italian neorealist film, directed by Federico Fellini. The movie is a drama about a naive young girl (played by Fellini’s wife, Giulietta Masina) who is sold to a brutish man in a coastal town in Italy. La strada won an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1957.

Plot: Free spirited Gelsomina (Guilietta Masina) is sold to the surly traveling circus performer Zampano (Anthony Quinn) as his assistant. Traveling from town to town to perform, a strange bond develops between the two as Gelsomina learns her purpose in life and Zampano realizes too late his attachment to her.
