Get a Great Confident Feeling

I was so inspired after seeing this movie. I don't think my feet hit the ground for days! I am only 5'2'.....but I felt 6' tall! Diane Lane was so good in this movie. I felt she was a friend by the end. If you are a woman facing life alone (as I am)...you will also feel...

I felt she was a friend by the end. If you are a woman facing life alone (as I am)...you will also feel more confident... like you can go out and conquer the world. I loved it. I am currently buying it, to be able to watch it whenever I feel a little low and need an uplift. Enjoy!

I borrowed this DVD from the library, and now that I've watched it I'm SO glad I didn't pay money for it. I did not enjoy this movie at all. It had poor character development, cheesy transitions, and an unrealistic plot. I was hoping to at least get some glimpses of of beautiful Tuscany, but I was out of luck. I'd recommend not wasting your time on this one...I mean, give me a break-- a GAY tour of Tuscany!?

    Read the book, skip the movie

    Although Diane Lane is charming, the star of the novel (upon which the movie is based) is the house--and we see precious little of the expertly-written dynamic tension that was in the book. The (many invented) characters were predictable (except Oh, who is always interesting), the cliches, underwhelming. A pleasant enough way to spend an evening, but I'm sure the author must have regretted selling the movie rights.
