Watch Liam Neeson in the trailer for 'Made in Italy'
In the upcoming film 'Made in Italy' Liam Neeson's particular set of skills don't include home repairs. Neeson plays Robert, an artistic type who is estranged from his son Jack. The two men come to Italy to repair the Tuscan villa left to them by Robert's wife and Jack's mother, and they may just repair their relationship while they're at it.
Here's the official synopsis:
James D’Arcy’s directorial debut, Made In Italy, is a heart-warming father son story set in glorious Tuscany about 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 in such a state of disrepair...
Renovations go badly, with father and son 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), an ex-pat making her living selling villas who quickly captures his attention. 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), 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. The future may now look quite different and surprise them both.
'Made in Italy' will be in select theaters, drive-ins, and digital/VOD on August 7, 2020.
