Under the Tuscan Sun is a 2003 romantic comedy  film.  Based on Frances Mayes' 1996 memoir, the film is about a just-divorced American writer who buys a villa in Tuscany, hoping it will be the start of a change for the better in her life.

Frances is a writer in her mid-'30s who feels emotionally upset after her divorce. Unhappy and unable to write, she doesn’t know what to do with her life, and her best friend Patti decides she needs some time away from her problems - Patti gives Frances a ticket for a two-week tour of the Tuscany region of Italy; while there, Frances finds a decaying old villa. Charmed by the kindness, beauty, and charm of the small town of Cortona, she on impulse decides to buy the villa, thinking she can fix it up herself. She hires a crew of Polish immigrants to renovate the house. Over time Frances develops a new confidence as she makes friends with her neighbours and finds love with a handsome local named Marcello, but their relationship does not last. She is about to give up on happiness ...

I recommend you watch this delightful film which has an enjoyable story,  excellent scenery and charming characters ...  Just an old favourite of mine!
