Two proper Englishwomen, determined to get away from their drab lives and innatentive husbands, find paradise in the serene countryside of the Italian Riviera in this enchanting adventure starring Josie Lawrence and Miranda Richardson. When the pair rent a magnificent villa for a month, they share expenses with two unlikely companions- an austere widow and a bored socialite. At first, personalities clash, but the hideaway holds a special magic that soon sparks friendships and reminds the women of ways to live and love that have long eluded them. Stellar performances and breathtaking scenery make the Academy Award nominated Enchanted April a captivating delight for everyone who's ever dreamed of taking the perfect holiday!

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The ladies are well bred, the scenery is lovely and the dialogue is polished and polite. It helps that the same villa in Portofino where Miss von Armin wrote the novel has been used to fine effect as the film's principal setting.
Fresh: That's what's appealing about the movie (everyone walks away happy) and also forgettable (everyone walks away mush).
Fresh: In a raucous movie summer, this is a film for those who appreciate wisteria and sunshine, and a recollection of a time when women and movies could be purveyors of enchantment.
Rotten: Strong cast's reliable playing is undercut by a script that dawdles over well-trod territory.
Best Movie Made
When ever I am stressed out I watch this movie and the stress goes away. I would love to be so relaxed that I could lie on a rock as a lizard crawls on me and I don't even flinch. I watched this movie so many times I wore out the tape. It is really incredible.
Great Movie, But ...
… the sound is next to non-existent. Can't hear hardly at all on my MacBook Pro speakers or even a USB speaker plugged into my MacBook Pro.
All Time Favorite! Go on HOLIDAY!
This movie is MAGICAL! It's a TUB OF LOVE! (I've got to have seen it at least 20 times so far.)
Every time I watch it -- I feel as if I've gone on Holiday!
The cast is fantastic. The story -- utterly charming. Very quiet, beautiful movie about coming into one's self and learning to love.
