Fireworks at the Villa Lucia

Comedy drama by Paul Mendelson.

When Pete, a struggling TV writer, and his wife Julie find themselves staying in the same Italian villa as cult movie director David Joe Jakes, he tries to sell his dog-eared screenplay as the true story of how he met his wife. The fireworks begin when he pressgangs his wife into pretending to be a fiery, psychotic, Venezuelan ex-soap star, while he masquerades as her psychoanalyst.
