| Takes 'The Women' to a whole new level
If you liked The Women, a classic drama featuring a group of women who spend all their time talking and worrying about the men in their lives, you'll like Enchanted April, a movie that takes that basic premise to the next level. Not only do the women in this movie feel emotional stress about their husbands, but they actually flee and rent an Italian villa to get a break.

Ann Harding is the lead, and her marriage to Frank Morgan is on the rocks. She goes to Italy and makes friends with her new roommates, Katharine Alexander, Jane Baxter, and Jessie Ralph, who also don't get along with their husbands. Rafaela Ottiano is the proprietress of their villa, and it's always fun to see her since she didn't make too many movies. The big difference that separates this movie from The Women is that the men actually show up! Ann and her pals are supposed to have a month of freedom but Frank Morgan and Reginald Owen can't stand it any longer and follow their wives to Italy to try to patch things up.

If you're a hopeless romantic, you'll probably really like this movie. You'll believe that the spring renews the heart and that fresh Italian air can mend a broken heart. I was a little peeved that the men in the movie couldn't last a mere month without their wives, and I wished they would go back home so Ann and the other girls could have their vacation in peace.
