Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:
Screen favorite Jessica Tandy (DRIVING MISS DAISY) stars with Bridget Fonda (KISS OF THE DRAGON) in this feel-good comedy about an unlikely pair who set off on the road to do everything they always wanted! On their madcap journey together, they find themselves losing their car in a lake, being duped by a con man, staging a kidnapping -- and having the time of their lives! If you liked FRIED GREEN TOMATOES and THELMA & LOUISE, you're going to love CAMILLA! It's a delightfully entertaining story that shows that friendship, fun, and adventure are all just part of the ride!
When Freda Lopez and her husband, Vince, vacation down in Georgia, their troubled marriage becomes even more unbearable. She's an unknown musician who won't give up her musical dreams while he's a frustrated artist turned soft-core porn advertiser. In comes neighbor and concert violinist Camilla Cara, who's had quite enough of her stubborn son, and both she and Freda begin a friendship that inspires both to run away. Once on the road, Freda and Camilla discover not only respect for each other, but for themselves and their ideals.
