The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone is a 2003 American-Irish made-for-television romantic drama film and a remake of the 1961 film of the same name based on the 1950 novel of the same title by Tennessee Williams. The film stars Helen Mirren, Olivier Martinez, Anne Bancroft and Brian Dennehy.
A failing star is faced with a lifestyle change when her rich husband suddenly dies while they are en route to Italy. She then sets off in a series of flings with gigolos found for her by an aging contessa. Each contact spirals further out of control until she becomes obsessed with one young man, who initially treats her well, but then with disdain.
