Sideways (15)

Director Alexander Payne;USA;2004


Very funny and very sad. The story is simple: wine-loving wannabe writer Miles is taking failed actor Jack on a week-long tour of California's wine region to celebrate his old friend's upcoming marriage. But while Miles wants to relax, drink and play golf, Jack is determined to get laid one last time before settling down. A charming, moving comedy about friendship, love and regret.

Starring Paul Giamatti, Thomas Haden Church, Virginia Madsen, Sandra Oh, Marylouise Burke


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

The theme encouraged a wine-tasting as a intro-activity... and the wine encouraged a warm response to the movie. Much liked!
