One of the best actresses around who gets little to no recognition in the ranks is my favorite Diane Lane. Not only is the woman beautiful but she is talented and spectacular. She takes on wonderful heart wrenching characters from different walks of life presenting women in a true light instead of on a pedestal.
Lane is an editor, reviewer in this delightful movie who is used abominably by her husband preferring a younger version. In the process he humiliates her by even taking her home.
When she receives the left overs of the marriage assets, she gets a gift to Tuscany and buys a home there. Life changes for her and she grows in leaps and bounds.
This is a simple story of a woman coming into her own. It is a chick flick if you will. A wonderful story of starting over and making a life out of ruins and heartbreak.
