Join us for a slice of la dolce vita at 6:00pm with rousing live accordion tunes from CATHIE TRAVERS before a 6:30pm screening of this delightful jaunt through a typically Italian renovation tale in a stunning village setting while a father and son confront their fractured relationship. You can also treat yourself to $10 Negroni Sbagliatos to go with your complimentary individual packet of grissini!
Made in Italy stars Liam Neeson opposite his real-life son Micheál Richardson in the story of a bohemian London artist who returns to Italy with his estranged son to make a quick sale on the villa they inherited from his late wife.
Neither expects to find the once beautiful villa in such a state of disrepair in this heart-warming comedy is set in glorious Tuscany.
Renovations go badly, and father and son find themselves at odds – not for the first time. Robert’s comical lack of DIY experience leads him to seek help from some colourful locals, but for Jack, the state of the house seems to mirror his search for memories of happier times with his mother. Then Jack falls for Natalia, a vivacious young Italian chef, who restores both body and soul with delights from her local trattoria - until the pair find their developing relationship in jeopardy from Natalia’s jealous and threatening ex-husband.
As Robert and Jack painstakingly restore the villa to its previous glory, they also start to mend their relationship. The future may now look quite different and surprise them both.
