A John Hughes-esque masterpiece! In the spirit of every teen “coming of age” story, this series hits all the right beats. A lot of unknowns combine for some amazing surprise chemistry as a cast and really pull the rabbit out of the hat with this one. Extremely cheesy, but equally entertaining and heartwarming. Strong dose of nostalgia.
Oh… she rebuilds the house while also rebuilding herself! I get it now.
One of those pleasant surprises you find surfing through a pile of movies that happens to enter your life at just the right moment, and hit your emotions in just the right spot.
A heartfelt tale of a writer rebuilding her life in the beautiful landscape of Tuscany. Making friends and building a life all while learning who she is as a person and what is really important to her in the process. Very well done sleeper hit. Diane lane really knocks it out of the park with this one.
One of the all-time great trilogies. I’ll say it. And not just because I was enjoying a bottle of the subject of these films myself while viewing. Have to test run the professional tasting methods yourself to use at future parties to impress fellow connoisseurs. This series brought a great depth to the field of sommeliers and the history of wine as a whole. Amazing culture to dive into and explore, and these films do so in a very reverent fashion through the lenses of the experts and pillars of the business. Very well done. Cheers!
