A Good Year (2006)

Max Skinner is a merciless bonds trader who loves to make money and believes that winning isn't everything, it's the only thing. So when he finds out that his uncle Henry, whom he lost touch with has passed away and left him his chateau and vineyard in France, Max thinks that once it's fixed up would be a great place to sell and make a profit from. But when he returns to the beautiful Napa Valley, his memory takes him back to his childhood and the wonderful summers he spent there with Henry. He also meets a beautiful cafe owner Fanny Chenal, and a young girl named Christie Roberts who claims she's Henry's long lost daughter. An enjoyable film with a lovely backdrop of the French countryside. Starring Russell Crowe, Albert Finney, Marion Cotillard, Abbie Cornish, Tom Hollander, Freddie Highmore 7/10
