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.

Paolo Virzì was born in Livorno in 1964. As a teenager, Virzì's versatility was already in evidence as he threw himself into writing, directing and acting in plays for drama companies in Livorno. He formed an artistic partnership with his schoolmate Francesco Bruni, who would later become his trusted co-screenwriter. He made his directing debut in 1994 with Living It Up which was presented at the Venice Film Festival. His best known films are Hardboiled Egg (1997), winner of the Grand Special Jury prize at the Venice Film Festival, The First Beautiful Thing (2010), which brought him a nomination from the European Film Academy for best director, as did Human Capital (2013), winner of Best Film and Best Screenplay at the David di Donatello awards.
