Storyline

A delicately-constructed tale of broken love, forbidden passion, and self-discovery, set in the lush foothills and cobbled streets of modern Italy. Set against the backdrop of the Island of Ischia, off Italy’s Amalfi Coast, And While We Were Here follows a young American writer (Kate Bosworth) who finds herself at a personal and professional crossroads when she accompanies her husband (Iddo Goldberg) on a business trip. While escaping the mundane life of her strained marriage by adapting her grandmother's World War II stories (narrated by Claire Bloom) into a memoir, she stumbles into a romantic affair with a younger man (Jamie Blackley) who complicates her life even further. modified plot formulation from hollywoodreporter.com
