Under the Tuscan SunDiane Lane (Secretariat) shines in the romance Under the Tuscan Sun, a movie we’re happy to see gets its Blu-ray debut.

In the 2003 film, Lane plays a just-divorced writer who goes on a bus tour vacation in Tuscany in an attempt to get out of a funk. Captivated by the Italian countryside, she buys a crumbling villa there hoping it will be the start of a new, better life. With an oddball crew repairing the house, Lane tries new things and new loves.

Under the Tuscan Sun was directed and written by Audrey Wells (Guinevere), based on the best-selling book by Frances Mayes.

The PG-13 movie, which was nominated for a production design Golden Globe award, also stars Sandra Oh (Rabbit Hole), Lindsay Duncan (Alice in Wonderland), Raoul Bova (The Tourist) and Vincent Riotta (Nine).

The feel-good movie, which has an Eat Pray Love feel, grossed $44 million when it was in theaters and charmed both critics and audience members.

Also starring lush shots of Italy, Under the Tuscan Sun deserves a good high-definition transfer.
