A Month by the Lake
Sometimes you just need to go to Lake Como in the Italian Alps. Our next Rialto Recommends takes you there. 1995's MONTH BY THE LAKE stars Vanessa Redgrave, Edward Fox and Uma Thurman. At a Lake Como resort, Miss Bentley, an attractive older guest, meets a handsome, well-to-do bachelor. But when he's more interested in a beautiful young flirt, the mischievous Miss Bentley goes to outrageous lengths to reel in her catch. Roger Ebert raved "A Month by the Lake is a sly romantic comedy about a collision of sex, ego, will and pride, all peeping out from beneath great thick layers of British reticence." While USA Today said "Vanessa Redgrave has never been more likable on screen than in her buoyantly athletic turn here." A MONTH BY THE LAKE is streaming on Hoopla or available for a modest rental fee from Amazon, YouTube, GooglePlay and Vudu HERE.
