Based in part on his autobiography, director Franco Zeffirelli's Tea with Mussolini is a story about a group of British and American travelers on an indefinite visit to Italy in 1935. Luca is a boy living in Florence whose family situation is precarious at best; his mother has run off and his father has little time for him. Fortunately, he's a welcome guest with Mary, a English woman visiting Italy to soak up European culture. Mary and her friends enjoy the cultured, creative atmosphere of life in Italy, and their initial response to the rise of fascism is to arrange a polite meeting with Mussolini to make sure he and his soldiers mean well

There are not many movies about the Italian front during World War II. Thankfully, "Tea With Mussolini" has a fabulous cast and shot in beautiful countryside of Italy. Without question if you are a fan of Maggie Smith, then this is a must see movie for you!

Tea With Mussolini is such a lovely film and memoir about a boy growing up with an English step mother in italy just as the second world war is about to begin. It is set in Florence and features a dream cast including: Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Cher, Lily Tomlin and others. Get your tea, espresso or Italian vino and settle in for a real treat. Video trailer added.
