Movie: Sideways

Go see the movie "Sideways" if you like a smart, witty flick. This movie was thoughtful and tender, yet frustrating and harsh. It brings to the fore many of life's struggles and lessons in diverse and unexpected ways. Paul Giamatti gives his usual superb performance, but he is supported solidly by Thomas Haden Church and Virginia Madsen.

Wine connoisseurs, of which I am not one, will appreciate this movie on a whole other level. For the rest of us, you will sink quietly into the lives of two men traveling the California wine country in search of very different things. Expect to laugh uncontrollably at moments you are the most unsuspecting.
