Crazy About Her
Adri and Carla have only just met but that doesn’t stop them from having the best night of their lives. Despite the fun, they both decide it was a one-off occasion and vow never to see each other again. Adri then finds himself smitten, thinking about Carla non-stop and sets out to find her. After discovering she is a resident at a mental health centre and is forbidden visits, he checks in as a resident himself to see her again. This brave piece Netflix is calling a dark comedy is addressing mental health in modern terms and assessing what it is to need support. Adri soon realises that his love story is not quite unfolding the way he had mapped out and in fact, he now has his own issues to address. We’re hoping that this comedic story, underpinned by a mental health narrative, will be handled as sensitively as 2021 demands. Starring Álvaro Cervantes and Susana Abaitua as Adri and Carla.
