THIS WEEK'S LIST
Woody Allen's going to Rome and the Italian Fest starts Thursday. So here are five fun films to quench your growin appetite for Italy:
"Gidget Goes to Rome" (1963). Yes, seriously. Gidget and Moondoggy have their teen romance tested against gorgeous Italian backdrops.
"Letters to Juliet" (2010). Amanda Seyfried is a young writer who tries to deliver a 50-year-old love letter.
"Roman Holiday" (1953). Audrey Hepburn is a bored princess who meets a handsome U.S. journalist (Gregory Peck).
"The Tourist" (2010). Alright, it was filmed in France and Italy. But it's a fun throwback to Hitchcock thrillers, plus Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie are as gorgeous as the scenery.
"Under the Tuscan Sun" (2003). Diana Lane finds love in adaptation of best-selling novel.
