Recommended Movie: Sideways
Directed by Alex Payne Starring Paul Giamatti, Thomas Haden-Church, Virginia Madsen

A buddy film about two middle-agers who head to wine country for a final week of freedom before Jack (Haden-Church) gets married. Jack spends the week trying his hand at various sorts of infidelity, much to the chagrin of his friend, Miles (Giamatti.)
Between the moments of lunacy and desperation are moments of hilarity and pure beauty. This is a movie that I enjoy more each time I watch it. It deserves all of the acolades it collects.
Five out of Five
