Dir. Alexander Payne. 2004, 126 mins. With Paul Giamatti, Thomas Haden Church, Virginia Madsen, Sandra Oh. Best friends Miles and Jack, two middle-aged guys with little in common but their propensity for failure, set off to California wine country for one last stab at fun and romance. A surprise hit, Sideways was nominated for five Academy Awards. The film also profoundly changed the American wine world.
