Irene (Margherita Buy) is a single career woman who works as a luxury hotel critic. On the rare occasions she’s not working, Irene’s world revolves around her absent-minded sister Silvia, two lively young nieces, and best friend—and former lover—Andrea. But when Silvia begins to deal with marital problems and Andrea faces an unexpected life change, Irene’s small support network is fractured and she struggles to balance a glamorous career with the growing desire for something more. The film won a Silver Ribbon Award, presented by the Italian National Syndicate of Film Journalists, for Best Comedy.
