Father and son mend relationship in Tuscany.
14 February 2021 | by TxMikeSee all my reviews

First off this movie has the novelty of Micheál Richardson, the lead character as Jack, is the real life son of Liam Neeson who plays his father, Robert. The story involves the accidental death of his mother when he was much younger, in real life the actor's mother, Natasha Richardson, died from an accident when he was quite young.

So Jack is married and working as the director of an art gallery his in-laws own. He is in the process of divorce and is told the gallery is being sold. He wants to keep his job and the only way to do that is to buy the gallery.

When his mother died the valuable home on a nice property in Tuscany is left to husband and son, a 50-50 split. So Jack gets his dad to go with him to Italy so that they can sell the home, split the profits, and Jack can buy the gallery.

Nothing works as planned, the property had been neglected so long it was in a sad state of repairs, basically unsellable in that condition. So part of the story is their getting it fixed up properly. In the process dad meets the nice real estate lady, just moved there from England. And Jack meets a local chef with an 8-yr-old daughter.

All in all this is a very nice movie, overall it is about son and dad mending relationships and finally coming to grips with everything that was involved in mom's death.

My wife and I watched it at home on DVD from our public library.
