Like Crazy is a tale of friendship that is as touching and compassionate as it is freewheeling and kinetic. Beatrice (Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi) is a motor-mouthed fantasist, a self-styled billionaire countess who believes she’s on intimate terms with world leaders. Donatella (Micaela Ramazzotti) is a tattooed introvert, a fragile young woman locked in her painful past. Both women are patients at the Villa Biondi, a progressive psychiatric clinic in the Tuscan hills. Paolo Virzì tells the story of the unpredictable and moving friendship that develops between the two women as they flee the clinic. With award-winning performances by its two leads, and an exceptional screenplay that imbues its characters with honesty, humour and true emotional depth, Like Crazy is a beautiful film about two unlikely friends and their search for happiness.
