Plot: A Good Year is as rich, rounded and satisfying as a well-aged bottle of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Sir Ridley Scott’s adaptation of the novel by Peter Mayle – best-selling author of numerous books celebrating all things Provençale – brings out the sommelier in us all.
As the film opens, eleven-year-old Max Skinner (Freddie Highmore) is being educated in the gentle art of savouring life – and wine – while summering on the vineyard estate of his earthy aesthete uncle Henry (Albert Finney).
