Feb. 27: “Happy as Lazzaro.” 7:15 p.m. Pure-hearted, cherubic teenager Lazzaro is content living as a sharecropper on a remote tobacco farm in the Italian countryside, where his good nature and decency makes him both cherished and exploited by those around him.

“ALL SCREWED UP.” Westchester Italian Cultural Center, 1 Generoso Pope Pl., Tuckahoe. 7 p.m. This outrageous comedy tells the story of Gigi and Carletto, two Southern Italian country boys who travel north to get work in Milan.
