The new trailer features the first meeting of Patrizia and Maurizio with the Italian family but focuses more on Reggiani plotting her husband’s death. It ends with her proclaiming, “I don’t consider myself a particularly ethical person but I am fair. I subscribe to unconventional punishment.” We sense danger!
