In her 2003 adaption of Frances Mayes’ memoir, Under the Tuscan Sun
, director Audrey Wells takes viewers on a trip to Italy with Diane Lane in the driver’s seat as Mayes, a San Francisco writer who is starting a new life after being left by her husband.
After meeting a variety of different people in Italy, buying a villa in Tuscany and having an affair, Mayes learns what life is really like outside the confines of her marriage.
