Under the Tuscan Sun

Under the Tuscan Sun October 14, 2003

I loved it. I mean them.

I went out and bought the book right after seeing the movie and though the film and book are not the same, almost all the plot points in the film are in the book. The author, Frances Mayes, calls the film just another “interpretation” of her book. If you’ve ever dreamed of living in Italy, getting in touch with the land, experiencing life as raw, new and old, read the book and see the movie. Hopeful, beautiful – you feel like you are there. I loved the way the Blessed Mother’s presence and influence is woven through both book and movie. What a lovely journey.
