From Back Cover:

" Sweet, touching, romantic and lovely."

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!

My Comments:

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.
