Ep. 112: Under the Tuscan Sun

Nate and Ryan watch Under the Tuscan Sun with special guest Rachel Hughes Gates. As we continue to rectify blind spots during this Gap Year, Rachel suggested that we watch Under the Tuscan Sun, a movie that has stuck with her ever since she saw it in theaters 20 years ago. Though the movie didn’t make the biggest splash upon its release, it has maintained popularity with its effective blend of romance, comedy, scenery, food, and affection for Italian cinema. Rachel talks us through what the movie has meant to her and why she thinks more people should watch Under the Tuscan Sun, preferably while eating some Italian food and some good wine.

What are your thoughts on Under the Tuscan Sun? What movies do you think we should watch to continue our Gap Year? Let us know!
