My House in Umbria is a 2003 HBO movie, based on the novella of the same name by William Trevor and published along with another novella in the volume Two Lives. The film stars Maggie Smith and was directed by Richard Loncraine. Emily Delahunty (Maggie Smith) is an eccentric British romance novelist who lives in Umbria in central Italy. Mrs. Delahunty settled in Italy to flee from a somewhat traumatic past which still haunts her, and lives alone apart from her servants, who put up with her eccentricities. One day while travelling, the train she is on is bombed by terrorists. After she wakes up in a hospital, she invites three of the other survivors of the disaster to stay at her Italian villa for recuperation.
