Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The official tie-in to the movie directed by Ridley Scott, starring Russell Crowe and Albert Finney--a Twentieth Century Fox release. <BR>Love, laughter, wine, and the glorious landscape of Provence abound in this movie from director Ridley Scott, who conceived the idea for this story with his Provencal neighbor Peter Mayle. Mayle then went on to write the novel on which the movie is based. <BR>The film's stars, Russell Crowe and Albert Finney, and its talented international cast and crew are beautifully portrayed in these pages, which also include an exclusive Q&A with Scott and Mayle, passages from the Marc Klein screenplay, a synopsis of the story, and fascinating behind-the-scene notes about the filmmaking, winemaking, and Provence. Includes over 130 beautiful production photos and illustrations. <BR>"A Good Year" tells the story of Max Skinner (Crowe), a London-based investment expert who inherits a small wine estate in the Luberon from his bon vivant uncle, and must take a break from daily warfare in the City to settle things. Max wants to sell and run, but once in Provence, his plans fall apart. <BR>The benevolent spirit of his late Uncle Henry (Finney), a lovely and feisty restaurant owner (Marion Cotillard), a mysterious young American (Abbie Cornish), a passionate winegrower (Didier Bourbon), and the magical region itself all conspire to keep Max at Chateau La Siroque, where he ultimately discovers the man he might have been.
