Pre-war Florence is the place to be for any proper British woman who relishes culture and the arts. These ladies have everything they could ever want or need – including a promise from Dictator Mussolini himself that not even the imminent World War will impose upon their lifestyle. But when it appears that his word is not kept and these expatriates are in trouble, it takes a young outcast boy and a brazen American woman to keep them in the high life and out of harm’s way.
Director Franco Zefferelli (Hamlet, The Champ, Romeo and Juliet), with co- screenwriter John Mortimer (Rumpole of the Bailey), based Tea with Mussolini on his own experiences growing up in Florence.
