  Feminism gone fluffy, "Under the Tuscan Sun" is an optimistic, mildly humorous, undoubtedly romanticized film based on a memoir by author Frances Mayes. The result is negligible, but it works as a vehicle for Oscar-nominated actress Diane Lane, whose interpretation of Mayes initially presents her as a powerfully attractive, recently-divorced San Francisco writer mired in solitude and misery. Best friend Patti (Sandra Oh), a sassy lesbian, tries to help Frances escape the doldrums by sending her on a vacation to sunny Italy. When the reluctant traveler reaches Tuscany, she's so enchanted by the place and its quaint, quirky denizens that she makes a snap decision to buy a run-down villa and relocate there. It's rougher going than she expects, so she hires a construction crew made up of colorful Polish immigrants. She starts to rely on the kindness of her new neighbors and bonds with a mysterious British woman (Lindsay Duncan) who lives in the nearby town. Can love between Frances and a handsome Italian man be far off? Written and directed by Audrey Wells with the rudiments of a stock Hollywood chick-flick, it's tolerable due to Lane's allure, Oh's spunk and lovely scenery from Tuscany to the Amalfi coast.
