This film should help fill the void for those people who dream of travelling overseas during these unchartered times, as international lockdown continues owing to the infectious COVID-19 pandemic.
Filmed in the picturesque Tuscan hills in Italy, this is the heart-warming story of a father and son who travel to Italy to renovate their derelict old family home so that a sale may be forthcoming.
Real-life father and son Liam Neeson and Michael Richardson play the pivotal roles of Robert, a man who lost his mojo as an artist once his wife died in a car crash and Jack, the son who felt emotionally disconnected from his father after the tragic accident.
Painful memories are re-ignited, but can this renovation project be the perfect catalyst to restore a loving relationship?
Neeson who predominantly starred in action flicks over the years has wisely chosen this emotionally charged family drama as a vehicle to display his versatility as an actor.
Made In Italy is an uplifting film about family, grief, and guilt. Humorous at times with a romantic subplot interweaved, audiences may succumb to tears in the final act as a tragic revelation surfaces. (MMo)
