SUMMARY from hollywood.com:
CASTA wine tasting road trip to salute Jack's final days as a bachelor careens woefully sideways as he and Miles hit the gas en route to mid-life crises. The comically mismatched pair, who share little more than their history and a heady blend of failed potential and fading youth, soon find themselves drowning in wine and women. Emerging from a haze of pinot noir, wistful yearnings and trepidation about the future, the two inevitably collide with reality.
Paul Giamatti .... Miles Raymond
Thomas Haden Church .... Jack
Virginia Madsen .... Maya
Sandra Oh .... Stephanie
Is there not a thread on this movie? I'm surprised, since it came out a while ago, was well received, and is supposedly an Oscar-contender.
I definitely wasn't the intended audience, but my mom didn't want to go alone and offered to take me out for coffee afterwards. () Sideways reminded me a bit of Adaptation, yet very realistic. The backdrop was true California. Some touching and funny moments, especially if you know wine snobs.
