Tea with Mussolini...

How did I miss this one?? I never saw this film until just yesterday and it is a beautiful thing.
I loved the story of the lovely old English ladies who had decided to make a home amid the beautiful art and sun filled landscape of Florence and the garish, swaggering Americans who set the tea service askew and how in the end, they find a mutual respect in a fight to save art and liberty together.
If you haven't seen it.. it's a must see. If you haven't seen if for awhile.. I'd check it out again. Lovely.
P.S. Cher if by some miracle you ever read this.. Do a standards album. I have never heard Smoke Gets in Your Eyes more gorgeously done. Stunning.
