Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You is a 2011 comedy-drama film directed by Roberto Faenza based on Peter Cameron's novel of the same name. It is primarily Italian financed, but was shot in English. The teenage American protagonist was played by eighteen-year-old English actor Toby Regbo and the supporting cast is mainly American.
The film premiered at the 2011 Rome Film Festival and was scheduled for release in Italy in February 2012. It will receive its North American premiere at the 2012 Miami International Film Festival, but no further cinematic release dates have been announced.
The Italian reviews were mixed, but considerable praise was given for Regbo's performance.
