It tells the story of four dissimilar women in post-war England who leave their damp and rainy environs to go on a holiday to a secluded coastal villa in Italy. Two women who belong to the same ladies' club but have never spoken, become acquainted after reading an ad for villas for rent in the local paper. They find two other ladies to help share expenses. The four women come together at the Villa and find rejuvenation in the tranquil beauty of their surroundings, rediscovering hope and love. It's a wonderful, lovely film!
Based on the 1922 novel by Elizabeth von Arnim. Miranda Richardson and Joan Plowright won Golden Globes for their performances.
Turn off the telephone, assemble the most beautiful tea tray you can arrange, snuggle up on the sofa with a warm, soft blanket (preferably on a rainy day), light some candles, and watch this film. You will love it.
