Sometimes, even when you’re living out your life on a breathtakingly picturesque Italian island and look like Kate Bosworth, life can be hard. You can have a mean composer husband who doesn’t want to spend time with you, a sense of misdirection in a foreign country and another man, sweet as he may be, trying to win your affections and sway you from your crummy marriage.
As Jane (Bosworth) finds out in Kat Coiro’s And While We Were Here, vacation time off the Italian coast might be the best time to let go of inhibitions and give in to making out with a cute dude. An homage to the many great romantic Italian films (I spy at least one dreamy Vespa ride), the film explores what happens when a person you meet on the street (Jamie Blackley) could turn out to be the love of your life.
Though the trailer doesn’t give us too much in terms of plot besides the assertion that the characters will “laugh. cry. love. live,” that actually seems like all we need to know. It’s Italy; they’re in love.
