Stifled British wives Lottie (Josie Lawrence) and Rose (Miranda Richardson) rent an Italian villa for a husbandless vacation. Sharing the retreat are acerbic widow Mrs. Fisher (Oscar nominee Joan Plowright) and socialite Caroline (Polly Walker). The four spend a month savoring newfound freedom and the opportunity for self-discovery. Alfred Molina co-stars in this tale of 1920s English manners, based on Elizabeth von Arnim's novel.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this period dramedy explores, albeit somewhat lightheartedly, the heartache four women are nursing caused by aging, marital neglect, and the like. It's somewhat heavy material for tweens and younger. The journey that the lead characters go on is moving, and there's plenty of takeaway for viewers old and young. Plus, it's refreshing to watch a movie that's not sustained by a heavy soundtrack and gimmicky plots.

Sexual Content

A woman is noticed, especially by men, primarily for her physical appearance, and she appears tired of it. A husband and wife reconnect emotionally after a cold spell. A woman enjoys the company of a man who's not her husband -- a scandalous thing during that time period; then again, her husband appears to be besotted with another woman.
