A Summer in Genoa (2008)

After his wife is killed in a tragic car accident, British professor Joe moves for a year with his two daughters Kelly and Mary to Genoa, Italy. While there they meet Barbara, an old friend of Joe's from Harvard. He teaches at the university, while older daughter Kelly gets sexually involved with a young Italian man, younger daughter Mary sees her dead mother from time to time and feels increasingly responsible for her death. Terrific performances in an emotional film; as well as wonderful look at the beautiful Italian landscape. Starring Colin Firth, Catherine Keener, Hope Davis, Willa Holland, Perla Haney-Jardine 7/10
