QUICK TAKE:
Drama: A young man tries to convince his estranged father to sell the Tuscan home they once lived in but neither has used in years.
PLOT:

Jack Forster (MICHAEL RICHARDSON) is about to get divorced from his wife, Ruth (YOLANDA KETTLE), but doesn't want to lose the art gallery -- owned by her parents -- that he currently manages. Needing to raise money to buy that from them, he proposes to his estranged artist father, Robert (LIAM NEESON), that they sell the Tuscan villa that they co-own. Neither has been there in decades, what with Robert having been unable to return following the car accident death of his wife back when Jack was young.

The place is now in disrepair, much to the chagrin of real estate agent Kate Lewis (LINDSAY DUNCAN). Robert believes they can fix the place up, but Jack knows they don't have the years it took local restaurateur Natalia (VALERIA BILELLO) -- who has a young daughter with her ex, Marzio (GIAN MARCO TAVANI) -- to rehab the building her restaurant is located in.

As the father and son begin working on the place, they also end up working on their long-fractured relationship.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
It doesn't seem likely many will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
