A Good Year (2006) (C)
"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 beautiful French woman (Marion Cotillard).
Crowe stars as ruthless businessman, Max Skinner, a man whose sole raison d'être is the acquisition of wealth at the expense of the 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 of 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 savour again and again! -- (C) 20th Century Fox, 2006, USA/UK.
Starrring Russell Crowe, Albert Finney, Marion Cotillard, Abbie Cornish, Tom Hollander, Freddie Highmore.
