What “From Scratch” Series Thought Me About Love

10 Things the Netflix Series “From Scratch” thought me about family and love.




Netflix/Jessica Brooks

When American student Amahle "Amy" Wheeler (Zoe Saldana) travels to Italy to study art, she never expects to fall in love with Sicilian chef Lino (Eugenio Mastrandrea). Their intense romance takes everyone by surprise.

As happy as Amy and Lino are together, differences in race soon put obstacles in their way. Lino comes from a traditional Sicilian family, which is not entirely thrilled with his choice of partner. And Amy’s father Hershel (Keith David) in the US also imagined a much more successful man for his daughter. However, when Lino receives a terrible diagnosis, the plans that the young couple had dared to dream of are suddenly threatened.

The movie that was simultaneously shot in Italy and on location in New York is, in fact, actually based on a true story. Specifically, the film was inspired by the book "From Scratch: A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home," in which actress Tembi Locke ("The Magicians") recounts her memories of her great love Saro (Lino, in the series).

If you need a good cry, then you need to watch it! This series is worth every tears.
