From Back Cover:
Sweet, touching, romantic and lovely."
-Bill Zwecker, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
Academy Award winner Russell Crowe and legendary director Ridley Scott team up again for this "touching, romantic and lovely" (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES) story of an Englishman who finds his soul when he loses his heart to a French beauty (Marion Cotillard).
Crowe stars as ruthless businessman Max Skinner, a man whose sole raison d'Ítre is the acquisition of wealth at the expense ofthe other guy. But when he inherits a vineyard in the south of France, hard-driving, fast-talking Skinner begins to slow down and embrace the simple - and most precious - pleasures in life.
Set against the visually intoxicating backdrop of Provence, France, and also starring Albert Finney, Freddie Highmore and rising star Abbie Cornish, A Good Year is a fun, full-bodied "delightful romantic romp" (MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE) you'll savor again and again!
Despite the amazing talent both in front of and behind the camera, my expectations for this "Under the Tuscan Sun but with a guy" movie were decidedly low. Having said that, I can't say that the movie disappointed me. However, I can quite confidently say that, as I expected, the movie is crap.
Rated PG-13 (MPAA)
