On Sunday, February 11, 2018, at 10:00 a.m., Cinema Art Bethesda will present the Italian film, Like Crazy (La pazza gioia). The film is 118 minutes long and in Italian with English subtitles. It was released in 2016 and was the winner of 5 David di Donatella Awards (Italian Oscars) including Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Director.
Beatrice is a motor-mouthed fantasist, a self-styled billionaire countess who likes to believe she’s on intimate terms with world leaders. Donatella is a tattooed introvert, a fragile young woman locked in her own mystery. They are both patients at the Villa Biondi, a progressive but secure psychiatric clinic.
Paolo Virzì’s new film tells the story of the unpredictable and moving friendship that develops between the two women as they flee the mental institution in search of love and happiness in the open-air nuthouse – the world of sane people.
