Judy asked Frances Mayes:

I was terribly disappointed at the movie version of your wonderful book, Under the Tuscan Sun. How do you feel about it?

Frances Mayes There have been many questions above about the movie. I liked it. And it has been fun to find that for many, it's kind of a cult movie now. People often tell me they've seen it forty times. If you expected it to follow the book closely, I can see how you might be disappointed, but I knew from the beginning that they'd be making the film more dramatic.
