Enchanted April

'A vacation, this delightful film says, can be a spiritual experience of transformation'

This 1992 film has just been released again on DVD. Two unhappily married women ask two strangers to join them for a monthlong holiday in an Italian medieval castle on the Mediterranean shores.

Enchanted AprilAlthough they come from different classes and backgrounds, they share in common a need to put aside their burdens and find themselves again. Before long, they are energized by the sun, the sea and the scent of flowers in this Italian paradise.

Director Mike Newell takes an out-of-the-ordinary situation and setting and makes us believe it’s within our reach. A vacation, this delightful film says, can be a spiritual experience of transformation (Miramax, PG).
