"Sideways": A film about wine

Since I write about film and I love pinot noir, Alexander Payne's new movie "Sideways" is pretty much the perfect film for me. Add to that a great performance by the classically depressed Paul Giamatti and a bucolic California setting, and it's going to be hard for me to find a better film this year. Last night's premiere offered a nice selection of pinots from Hitching Post, the restaurant featured in the film, and a big spread of cheese, pate and chocolate fondue. I didn't sample much food, though, because I don't have much appetite at 11 pm and I had to talk to Alexander, his wife and the film's co-star Sandra Oh and producer Michael London, who said he had been on a few of the Santa Inez valley wine adventures described in the Rex Pickett novel "Sideways" is based on. I don't think this quote will make the movie ads, but if you liked Eric Rohmer's "Autumn Tale" and Nick Hornby's "High Fidelity," you'll love "Sideways."
