FRIDAY 7th May 'From the Vine' (M) 97 mins (Canada)
Director: Sean Cisterna Cast: Joe Pantoliano, Paula Brancati, Marco Leonardi. Emmy-winner Joe Pantoliano (The Sopranos) plays a man who, after an ethical crisis, returns to his hometown in rural Italy. There, he finds a higher purpose: reviving his grandfather's old vineyard.
Based on a Kenneth C. Cancellara's book Finding Marco, the film tells the story of Marco Gentile, a high-flying executive from Toronto who abruptly up-sticks and moves to Italy to tend to his late grandfather's derelict vineyard. Spurred on by the nostalgia of his upbringing and the callous nature of his job, Marco's late-life crisis hits fever pitch where, among the sun-dappled vines, he attempts to atone for the environmentally destructive nature of the company he once worked for by reviving the old vineyard.
"A warm hearted story, that places you into a common dream. Giving up the busy life in search of that romantic quietness of a life in Italy’s countryside. Beautifully directed in the most amazing scenery. Great performance by Joe Pantoliano. Bellissimo"
"Storyline is great, scenery is beautiful, cannot beat story of wine, reflection and Italy. All cast were perfectly cast for their roles.
We will be serving our usual good house wines plus some ITALIAN SPECIALS at this wine 'flavoured' movie night.
