Review

Our Score
OK, so she got a free holiday out of it. But Diane Lane, Oscar nominated for Unfaithful, really does deserve better than this corny, old-fashioned slushfest. She plays a successful writer who journeys to Italy after a messy divorce and impulsively buys a broken-down villa in Tuscany. It's the cue for close encounters with every kind of local stereotype, from cutely rustic repairmen to lusty Latin lotharios. In the process, of course, she rediscovers her self-esteem - and gets her house fixed up! Lane looks ravishing. So does the scenery. But the whole thing has the depth and substance of a puddle. And it's just as wet.

Summary

A middle-aged writer takes a trip to Tuscany to get over her divorce and a bad case of writer's block. On a whim, she buys a dilapidated villa, and fixes it up while immersing herself in a new life and gathering a new circle of friends - including a handsome lover. Romantic comedy drama, starring Diane Lane, Raoul Bova, Sandra Oh and Lindsay Duncan.
