4K Restoration! While honeymooning in Rome, a young bride slips away to search for the White Sheik, the dashing romantic hero of her favorite comic strip—only to find that he may not live up to her fantasies. Marking his first outing as a solo director, Fellini’s charming farce begins his career-long exploration of the commingling of reality and imagination.
