LIKE CRAZY (2016)
LA PAZZA GIOIA
2016, Strand Releasing, 118 min, Italy/France, Dir: Paolo Virzì

Director Paolo Virzì (HUMAN CAPITAL) and his two lead actresses all won well-deserved Nastri d'Argento awards for this delightful dramedy. Donatella (Micaela Ramazzotti) and Beatrice (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi) are both patients at a psychiatric hospital and unlikely friends - the former withdrawn, the latter manic. When a van is late to pick them up from their jobs at a local nursery, the two board a bus and embark on a road trip that is by turns amusing and touching. “A terrific comedy-drama about two women in a mental institution that avoids the pitfalls such a scenario could encounter and boasts delicious dialogue with a rare sense of balance.” - Jay Weissberg, Variety.


A PERFECT FAMILY
UNA FAMIGLIA PERFETTA

The latest film from director Paolo Genovese (THE IMMATURE) earned a Nastro d’Argento nomination for Best Comedy from the Italian film critics union (S.N.G.C.I.). The wealthy Leone (Sergio Castellitto) dreads the thought of spending another Christmas alone - so he hires a group of actors to play his family. In Italian with English subtitles.
