Taken from a chapter in the autobiography of acclaimed filmmaker Franco Zeffirelli, Tea With Mussolini is written by British novelist and playwright John Mortimer and Zeffirelli drawing on the latter's published memoirs. The film tells of Luca Innocenti (born out of wedlock and not officially recognized by his father) and his struggle to assert his independence and find his way into a life of art. The coming-of-age tale is also a haunting evocation of a vanished world: that of the quiet city of Florence on the brink of World War II. Judi Dench (Shakespeare In Love), Joan Plowright (Enchanted April) and Maggie Smith (Room With A View, California Suite) portray the eccentric, colorful and strong-willed ladies who, along with a free-spirited American art collector (Cher) and archeologist (Lily Tomlin), raise the youth and fashion him into a perfect British gentleman.
