Aro Favourite Barney's Version


Canada 2010, 132 minutes
Dir. Richard J. Lewis
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama, Comedy

Topics: Late-life.


Aroview: Paul Giamatti fans will find much to enjoy in this bittersweet character piece in which he plays a jaded TV producer who reflects on his varied successes and failures, and the three key women in his life through the decades.

Mordecai Richler's much-loved novel is here shaped into a satisfying, sensitive screen adaptation, with Giamatti nailing a character who's forgivable through all his flaws, and Rosamund Pike a stand-out among his suitors. At once cynical and big-hearted, this is a grown-up drama that comes stamped with a seal of Canadian quality.
