Aro Favourite Sideways


USA 2004, 121 minutes
Dir. Alexander Payne
Rating: [M]
Genres: Comedy, Drama / Road Movie

Topics: Mid-life.


Aroview: Reserve quality odd-couple comedy-drama from the consistent talent behind ELECTION and ABOUT SCHMIDT, about two middle-aged friends on a Californian wine trail.

Paul Giamatti is priceless as the struggling writer and passionate wine enthusiast still in love with his ex-wife, with Haden Church his perfect foil as a philandering bridegroom-in-waiting who just wants to get laid. Full of scrupulous detail about wine, this speaks volumes about male obsession and bonding, and is destined to age very well, alongside classics of male romantic neurosis like MANHATTAN.
