Audience Reviews for Light in the Piazza


Nice drama in a beautiful setting. Except for the ludicrous casting of George Hamilton as an Italian the film benefits from an excellent cast. Olivia is strong as the worried mother, Rossano dashing and Yvette breathtakingly beautiful like a china doll come to life.
