Under the Tuscan Sun | 2003 | PG-13 | - 6.3.5

A recently divorced woman (Diane Lane) goes on a tour of Tuscany, Italy, and while there she decides to quit her stressful job, buy a rundown villa and start a new life, on her own. She soon befriends a Polish work crew that helps her fix up the house, she learns how to cook and learns how to fall in love again. Also with Raoul Bova, Sandra Oh, Lindsay Duncan and Dan Bucatinsky. Directed by Audrey Wells. [1:53]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - A woman invites a man to sleep with her, they kiss passionately, they remove each other's clothing, they continue kissing (we see her in a bra and he is bare-chested), he kisses her neck, down her chest to her crotch, she moans and while stretching her arms grabs the private parts of a nearby nude male statue. A young man and a young woman kiss and caress each other in bed (we see her in a bra and panties and he is bare-chested). A man and a woman kiss in bed, and she reaches under the sheets toward his crotch. Two women kiss, and a man and a woman kiss. A woman kisses a man she does not know, pretending he's her husband. A young man and a young woman kiss, he kisses her foot and up her ankle. A man tells a woman that her husband has been unfaithful and has been "living his teenage fantasies." A woman is followed by three men and they make comments in a foreign language and gesture (she appears frightened as she tries to get away from them). A young man and a young woman look at each other longingly in several scenes. A married man flirts with a woman. An elderly woman weeps from sadness. A man admires a woman and flirts with her. A nude woman lies on a sofa barely covered by a feather boa, a younger man approaches her in very skimpy underwear and she caresses his buttocks. A woman wears very short shorts that reveal part of her buttocks. A woman wears a low-cut sweater and when she bends over a table we see her ample cleavage, and a woman wears a low-cut dress that reveals her cleavage. A woman tears off her clothes when a scorpion lands on her shirt and she stands in her bra and pants on her balcony, while a family watches her. A woman talks about her lover abandoning her. People talk about celibacy. Two women talk about having a baby together. A man grabs his crotch.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
