Liam Neeson (Taken, Kinsey, Love Actually) and Micheál Richardson (Cold Pursuit, Big Dogs) star in this
hilarious and heartwarming story set in gorgeous Tuscany. Made in Italy follows bohemian London artist Robert (Liam Neeson), who returns to Italy with his estranged son Jack (Micheál Richardson) to make a quick sale of the house they inherited from his late wife. Neither expects to find the once beautiful villa – or their own relationship – in such a state of disrepair.
Renovations go badly, with Robert and Jack soon finding themselves at odds. Robert’s comical lack of DIY experience leads him to seek help from some colorful locals including the no-nonsense Kate (Lindsay Duncan, Birdman, Under The Tuscan Sun), an ex-pat making her living selling villas. For Jack, the state of the house seems to mirror his search for memories of happier times with his mother. He soon falls for Natalia (Valeria Bilello, Sense8), a vivacious young Italian chef, who restores both body and soul with delights from her local trattoria – until the pair find their developing relationship in jeopardy from Natalia’s jealous and threatening ex-husband. As Robert and Jack painstakingly restore the villa to its previous glory, they also start to mend their relationship.
