“The Trip to Italy” is a semi-fictional improvised tour of that nation with Brydon commissioned by a newspaper to go on a driving tour of Italy from Liguria to Capri, partly following in the footsteps of the great Romantic poets.

“The Trip” took in $2 million at the U.S. box office and was also a healthy performer on VOD. The films are also based on the BBC series of the same name.

The deal for the film was negotiated by Arianna Bocco for Sundance Selects/IFC Films with GoalpostFilm on behalf of the filmmakers. Goalpost Film is handling international sales.
