LIKE CRAZY (2016) [LA PAZZA GIOIA]
Beatrice is a strong-willed though undeniably delusional mental patient at a facility in Tuscany. Villa Biondi used to belong to Beatrice's aristocratic family, but now it's a psychiatric hospital for women. Beatrice tells herself that she's just there for a rest and treats the staff and fellow patients as if they are servants. When busybody Beatrice takes an interest in troubled young newcomer Donatella (Micaela Rammazzoti), who has had her child taken away, Beatrice decides the two need to escape the villa to right these wrongs. Valeria Bruni Tedeschi gives a powerhouse performance as Beatrice in Paolo Virzì's (HUMAN CAPITAL) winning, wacky comedy about female friendship. DIR/SCR Paolo Virzì; SCR Francesca Archibugi; PROD Marco Belardi. Italy/France, 2016, color, 118 min. In Italian with English subtitles. NOT RATED
