Enchanted April begins in London, where Lottie Wilkins (Josie Lawrence) becomes obsessed with a newspaper rental advertisement, addressed "to those who appreciate wisteria and sunshine," for a "small medieval Italian castle on the shores of the Mediterranean."
Lottie and her neighbor (Miranda Richardson) advertise for additional roommates and settle on Mrs. Fisher (Joan Plowright), a domineering widow, and Lady Caroline Dester (Polly Walker), a wealthy beauty who is seeking escape from the eyes of men.
With this sort of vacation movie, the trick is to balance the ease of a holiday atmosphere with just enough dramatic tension to keep things from bogging down.
