Movie Preview: Bottle Shock

Did you like Sideways, a quirky indie movie about wine (and relationships)? Then you might dig Bottle Shock, another indie movie about wine, this time with an emphasis on the history of American winemaking. It may sound like a snoozefest to some of you, but the trailer makes it look incredibly interesting. The film premiered at this year's Sundance and I was sorry to miss the screenings while I was there.

The movie focuses on the mid-1970s when French wine makers were starting to sit up and pay attention to what was going on in California vineyards. Alan Rickman stars as a wine snob from across the pond who comes over to find out what these California "hicks" are up to with their so-called wine. The supporting cast includes Bill Pullman, Dennis Farina, Chris Pine, Eliza Dushku and Freddy Rodriguez, among others. It looks funny and interesting, and opens in limited release August 8. To check out the trailer,

I attended the Seattle International Film Festival, and after seeing this, i couldn't wait to take a trip to California just to go and see the vineyards up there. A beautiful soundtrack, and screenplay, with camera angles that encourage you to create your own vineyard.

I wasn't a Freddy fan until this film, but he steals many scenes from the "lead" Chris Pine (who has absolutely NO personality or charisma whatsover). I very much enjoyed it at Sundance. And I'm always glad to see Bill Pullman in anything.

Anything with Alan Rickman should not be considered a snoozefest! Even if it is about wine.

Freddy Rodriguez is coming off a little heavy-handed in the trailer, but otherwise it looks really cute.

I did not like Sideways at all, I felt like maybe I was a bit young to really enjoy the jokes and my roomie seemed to sum it up best at the time "Maybe if we were middle aged divorcees we would love this, but unfortunately we are 19". I do love Alan Rickman and all his works and it has been 3 years so maybe I should give this movie a try. :-)

It's got Alan Rickman. I'm sold on that fact alone. ;) The Freddy Rodriguez doesn't hurt, either.

I think this looks cute! I loved Sideways, but I was biased because I grew up 15 min from all those places!
