Stealing Beauty

Set against the bewitching backdrop of a Tuscan landscape, the story tells of a young American woman who comes to Europe in search of love and identity. Lucy (Liv Tyler) finds romance in the complex relationships that link a long list of characters, who include a dying playwright (Jeremy Irons), a crusty art collector (Jean Marais), an Italian lonely-hearts columnist (Stefania Sandrelli) and a cynical Italian journalist (Carlo Cecchi), not to mention the inhabitants of the Villa di Geggiano across the valley, whose members include two sons who suceed each other in Lucy's affections. Of the story directed by veteran helmer Bernardo ("THE LAST EMPEROR") Bertolucci: "But for all its many threads, the story ... remains simple and familiar, a kind of 1990's film version of a Henry James novel."
