Originally titled Mania Days and renamed Touched With Fire after being acquired by Roadhouse Pictures for distribution, Paul Dalio’s second feature film tells the story of two manic depressive who meet in a psychiatric hospital. The two are drawn to each other, but their love for each other brings out both the best and worst in them. Written and directed by Dalio, who also served as editor and composer for the film, Touched By Fire stars Katie Holmes and Luke Kirby and also features Griffin Dunne and Christine Lahti.
Touched With Fire premiered at SXSW this past March, and some of Daniel’s praise from his review ultimately made the film’s trailer and poster.
Roadside Attractions will release the film in theaters on February 12, 2016.
