In 1950s America, Mrs. Fairytale spends her days in her surreal dream home with stuffed poodles, whiskey infused teas, sinful mambo lessons, and threats of alien invasions.
This lushly stylized depiction of idyllic 1950s America as seen through the lens of director Sebastian Mauri, is a technicolor feast. Replete with costumes by Fabio Zambernardi, the director of design for Miu Miu and Prada, writer and star Filippo Timi, is Doris Day on steroids in this surreal and fantastic homage to the Golden Age of Hollywood.
