Tea With Mussolini Overview

This is supposed to be the true story of director Franco Zeffirelli's own childhood. In 1936, with the Nazis loose in Germany and the Fascists loose in Italy, the young director finds himself left in the care of a Jewish-American millionairess and three eccentric British women. It features Oscar-winners Judi Dench and Cher.
