OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE SAYS
Academy Award nominee DIANE LANE stars as Frances Mayes, a 35-year-old San Francisco writer whose perfect life has just taken an unexpected detour. Her recent divorce has left her with terminal writer's block and extremely depressed, and her best friend, Patti, is beginning to think she might never recover. Frances decides to take a break and she buys a villa in the beautiful Tuscan countryside and decides to begin anew. Restoring her new home, she eventually finds the fulfillment she was searching for, including love. Based on Frances Mayes' acclaimed best selling memoir of the same name.
This is a highly romnticised take on a true story. A San Francisco woman jacked all in to emigrate to Italy - with her HUBBY! In this she's a single lawyer who bags an Italian hunk. Chick Flick in huge neon letters. Plus high gay factor. Audrey Wells is a funny gal who was responsible for another quirky hit, 'The Truth About Cats & Dogs'.
