Florence, Italy, on the brink of WWII — it was a time of social unrest and, of course...afternoon tea. Join OSCAR® Winner Cher* and an incredible cast of leading ladies as they host this “radiant, beautiful film” (Gene Shalit, Today) that is “worth savoring” (Mademoiselle).
Pre-war Florence is the place to be for any proper British woman who relishes culture and the arts. These ladies have everything they could ever want or need — including a promise from Dictator Mussolini himself that not even the imminent World War will impose upon their lifestyle. But when it appears that his word is not kept and these expatriates — who choose to stay in Italy instead of seeking refuge in their own country — are in trouble, it takes a young outcast boy and a brazen American woman (Cher) to keep them in the high life and out of harm’s way.
