I've been under the weather most of this week and so naturally I turned to Netflix for a little company while trying to rest and heal.
I came across the 2003 film Under the Tuscan Sun. I've heard rumblings about both it and the memoir it's based on over the years but had never taken the time to check either out.
I must admit, I am glad that I finally did.
Under the Tuscan Sun tells the story of a woman, who after going through a terrible divorce, buys a run down villa in Italy on a whim.
I didn't really know what to expect but what I found was touching, while still amusing, story on what it is to start over.
I definitely had a good time with this film but I couldn't help being more intrigued by the idea of the book.
I am a sucker for travel memoirs and books on foreigners living abroad (Ce La Folie by Michael Wright being a favourite of mine) and so I have hope that however charming the movie ended up being, the book will be even more so.
Definitely be keeping an eye out for this one.
