Altrincham Film Club presents Sideways

A film with Wine Tasting with Nic from Reserve Wines

A wine tasting road trip to salute Jack's final days as a bachelor careens woefully sideways as he and Miles hit the gas en route to mid-life crises. The comically mismatched pair, who share little more than their history and a heady blend of failed potential and fading youth, soon find themselves drowning in wine and women. Emerging from a haze of pinot noir, wistful yearnings and trepidation about the future, the two inevitably collide with reality.

The Wine

Not an eccentric alcohol delivery method but a unique event where we sample wine as we watch the 2004 film Sideways.  When our heroes sample wine, we pause the film and Nic from Reserve Wines will reveal the character of that particular grape and region, and we taste the wine.  Whilst the guys in the film go through quite a few bottles on their adventure, we’ll be tasting 4 wines throughout the evening.

 

"Giamatti handily raises what could've been a pedestrian road trip romance into the stratosphere of a world-class character study" Jay Antani

 

"A beautiful little chamber dramedy about four sharply-drawn characters played with a very lovely mixture of nuance and showmanship" Tim Brayton
