You know when American (but also British and Scandinavian) productions shoot a film.
Putting a protagonist who rediscovers herself among the clichés of the beautiful country? Here, Love & Gelato is the synthesis of all this, as you can see in the official trailer.
Based on the novel of the same name by Jenna Evans Welch , the film stars an American girl, Lina (Susanna Skaggs) , who decides to spend the last summer before college in Rome, thus fulfilling her mother’s last wish. The joyful chaos of Italian life – yes – allows her to open up to the world with less rigidity, while two very different young men court her. There is also Valentina Lodovini in the role of Francesca , an old friend of her mother.
Love & Gelato is written and directed by Brandon Camp , director of Something Special and Benji . The release is expected on June 22 on Netflix .
