A Good Year stars two Academy Award-winning actors (Russell Crowe and Marion Cotillard) plus it was directed by Ridley Scott. Why don't I remember hearing about this when it came out?
First it was pre-Cotillard's Oscar win. Second, almost all the reviews I checked online gave it an overall mediocre rating. And third, well there's really no third. But I'm glad I had no prior knowledge when I stumbled upon it at my local video store. I actually enjoyed the film! It wasn't mind-blowingly riveting but definitely enjoyable. It's a story about wine, love, purpose and France...lots of France. Well, mostly a vineyard. It makes me want to rent all of Cotillard's previous films because there weren't enough scenes with her and I'm curious about what kind of other roles she's played. If you've seen this movie weigh in, if not give it a try.
