Summary: Pierce Brosnan (Mamma Mia!) and Trine Dyrholm (A Royal Affair) star in this sparkling romantic comedy from Academy Award® winner Susanne Bier (In A Better World, After The Wedding), about two very different families brought together for a wedding in a beautiful old Italian villa.
Ida (Dyrholm) is preparing to take a trip to Sorrento with her husband Leif to attend the wedding of their daughter Astrid and her fiancé, Patrick. Arriving home early one day, Ida discovers Leif has been unfaithful and makes the decision to take the trip alone.
At the airport, Ida accidently collides with brooding widower Philip (Brosnan) whom she discovers to be Patrick’s father. Cold and business-focused, Philip is unimpressed with the happy-go-lucky Ida. Forced to travel together, the two find it hard to tolerate each other and are relieved when they arrive at the villa.
Surrounded by lemon groves, cypress trees and the romance of Italy, the perfect backdrop for Astrid and Patrick’s wedding, the young couple’s future happiness is suddenly jeopardized and Ida and Philip are brought together to try to set things right.
