Sideways Rated 15


Dir. Alexander Payne. USA, 2004. 2h 7m. Starring Paul Giamatti, Thomas Haden Church, Virginia Madsen, Sandra Oh, Marylouise Burke, Jessica Hecht, Missy Doty, M. C. Gainey.

Two men reaching middle age with not much to show for it embark on a week long wine-drenched, angst-ridden, sex-filled road trip through California's vineyards. A hysterically funny and melancholy comedy that won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay.

‘Brilliantly observed characters are becoming second nature to Payne and Taylor, and the performances here are uniformly terrific. This is wonderful, original stuff.’ ★★★★★ Dan Jolin, Empire Magazine

’In Sideways, Payne has created four of the most lived-in, indelible characters in recent American movies. This deliciously bittersweet movie makes magic out of the quotidian.’ ★★★★★ David Ansen, Newsweek
