Director Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) brings new life to Elizabeth Von Arnim’s novel capturing a beautiful Italian countryside in which two proper Englishwomen attempt to leave behind their lives and husbands to find themselves. Miranda Richardson as Rose Arbuthnot (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) and Josie Lawrence as Lottie Wilkens (EastEnders) have put together funds to pay for said vacation but need to find at least two more women to help them pay for every day expenses. In comes actress Joan Plowright as Ms. Fisher (The Spiderwick Chronicles), a stern and very proper older woman and Polly Walker as Caroline Dester (Rome) a most improper younger woman. Personalities clash but the enchantments of Italy and the surrounding landscapes manage to bring them together.
