Two middle-aged men head on a week-long trip through Santa Ynez Valley wine country. Miles is a divorced English teacher and unsuccessful writer; his road trip companion Jack is a soon-to-be-married over-the-hill actor who wants one last sexual fling before his marriage. The result is a series of shenanigans on their trip and “the best human comedy of the year”.

The witty and insightful film is an impeccable balance of the emotional and the comedic, with terrific acting by Paul Giamatti and Thomas Haden Church.

Sideways was a surprise hit, and received universal acclaim from critics. It received five nominations at the 77th Academy Awards, and won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay. The film also brought about increased tourism to the Santa Ynez Valley, and an increase in the sales and price of pinot noir, which Miles frequently speaks fondly of.
