Once in Tuscany, she impulsively buys a run-down villa, plunging herself into a life-changing adventure filled with unexpected surprises, friendship and romance. Beautifully filmed in Italy's incredible Tuscany and featuring a dazzling cast - you'll fall in love with...
This was a wonderful family afternoon film, or one of those you watch with your girlfriends over wine and popcorn.
Funny in places, there is a touch of real life running through it.
The best films leave us with a smile and the knowledge and continued dependence on hope and this films delivers that in buckets.

Under the Americanised Sentimental Sun
- Under the Tuscan Sun review by 'Clx2'
Well, there are worse ways to pass an evening, I suppose. But if you really want to spend your time in the company of some Americanised sentimental twaddle that just wants to dig up lots of stereotypes about Europeans (sex-crazed Italians, grumpy Germans, etc etc), this is the film for you. 9/10? Pur-lease.
