Tea With Mussolini
Franco Zeffirelli directs this autobiographical comedy about a young boy (Baird Wallace)
left in the care of three eccentric British women (Joan Plowright, Maggie Smith and Judi Dench),
and a frequently widowed Jewish-American millionairess (Cher) in Tuscany from 1936 to 1944.
Lily Tomlin, Charlie Lucas and Massimo Ghini will also star. John Mortimer wrote the screenplay.
Capsule Review: A disjointed comedy-drama whose point gets lost somewhere along the way.
A terrific cast is ultimately wasted here.
[PG - thematic elements] (MGM)
