This captivating story of unexpected amoré begins on March 13, opens on March 21 and runs through April 29.

Enchanted April is an irresistible tale of love, hope, and rejuvenation. To Lotty and Rose, 1920's London seems as gray and dreary as their disintegrating marriages. When the ladies discover a chance for a luxurious Italian vacation, they resolve to make their getaway without their distant, unappreciative husbands.

In a sunlit, flowering Italian villa, the ladies reclaim their lives with friendship, tears, and laughter"
