I love movies, who doesn't? But I especially enjoy ones about wines or wineries. So I'm going to recommend one of my favorites. Can you guess which one? You're probably thinking Sideways, and I do like that movie. I'll discuss that another time. But you'd be wrong!
Today I'm going to discuss:
A Good Year (2006) Comedy, Drama and Romance
Blurb: After years of no contact with his Uncle Henry, London banker and bond trader Max Skinner learns that Henry has died intestate, so Max inherits a château and vineyard in Provence. Max spent part of his childhood there, learning maxims and how to win and lose, and honing his killer instinct (at chess, which serves him well in finance). Max goes to France intent on selling the property. He spends a few days there, getting the property ready to show. Memories, a beautiful woman, and a young American who says she's Henry's illegitimate daughter interrupt his plans. Did Max the boy know things that Max the man has forgotten?
If you can rent it, do so. It's well worth it. And the scenery is wonderful.
Happy movie watching!
Now on to something I promised you last week. If you remember I launched my new web design. Anyone who left a comment on this blog and the group blog (Mysteries and Margaritas) this week had their names put into a hat for a drawing. The winner receives a coffee mug and a $10 GC to Starbucks. I wrote all the names down and put them in Ron's (hubby) golf hat and he drew a name.
The winner is....
Congratulations! Marie H.
