Watch: Trailer for Indie 'Touched With Fire' Featuring Katie Holmes
"Are we a mistake, Carla? Are we a mistake?" Roadside Attractions has debuted the first trailer for Paul Dalio's indie romantic drama Touched With Fire (formerly known as Mania Days when it premiered at SXSW), starring Katie Holmes as a manic depressive who falls "crazy in love" with someone just like her. At the psychiatric hospital she meets a fellow bipolar patient, played by Luke Kirby, and they end up on a "passionate, yet unhealthy love affair". This looks much more powerful and beautiful than I was expecting, especially in the final 30 seconds of this trailer, so give it a chance and let it play all the way to the end. The cast includes Christine Lahti, Bruce Altman, Griffin Dunne and Alex Manette. You might just be intrigued.
Here's the first official trailer for Paul Dalio's Touched With Fire, originally from Yahoo:
Holmes stars as a manic depressive woman who checks herself into a psychiatric hospital. It's there where she meets a fellow bipolar patient and aspiring poet (Luke Kirby) with whom she has a budding romance. They soon embark on a passionate, yet unhealthy love affair, which brings a whole new meaning to the phrase, "crazy in love." Touched With Fire was originally titled Mania Days when it premiered earlier this year. The film is the feature debut of young filmmaker Paul Dalio, of a few shorts previously who also wrote the screenplay for this. It first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival this year. Roadside Attractions will be releasing Touched With Fire in select theaters starting on February 12th early in 2016. Interested?

As some one who has a bipolar family member, this is not really accurate (at least in my case). This looked more like schizophrenia, manic episodes are different.

Interesting, David. I have a younger sister who is schizophrenic and has been all her life. I don't relate any of these scenes here to her behavior. It might be worth noting, from an interview I read with Katie Holmes, that the young director/writer on this film is bipolar and his film is based on his experiences as such and she based her performance on much of what he shared with her. She also read a lot and research a lot regarding just what is to be bipolar. This mental illness stuff is very complex and it seems we all have many different experiences when family members are saddled with the disease. I wish you and your family and especially the family member who is bipolar the best. None of this is easy, that's for sure.

Thank you, Bo. I guess every one has different personal experiences. Luckily, the person in my life who suffers from bipolar is on good medicines now. And I get they have to heighten stuff for films. I suppose I am just too close to this subject to be objective.
