REVIEW FOR SIDEWAYS - A US FILM BY ALEXANDER PAYNE
The Hyderabad Film Club is screening a US film, Sideways, on 26th April, at the Sarathi Studios, Ameerpet. The film is directed by Alexander Payne, and has Paul Giamatti, Thomas Haden Church, Virginia Madsen and Sandra Oh playing the central characters.
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.
Sideways went on to win several awards, including the Academy Award for the Best Adapted Screenplay, the BAFTA for Adapted Screenplay, the Golden Globe for the Best Motion Picture (Musical Or Comedy) and for Best Screenplay, the Gotham Award for Best Picture and the National Board Of Review Of Motion Pictures award for the Top Ten Films of 2004 - Best Supporting Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay.
