TT Cinema London Wine Week Special: A Good Year Screening

14th May

We’re marking London Wine Week 2019 here at TT Liquor with a screening of Ridley Scott’s 2006 romantic comedy, A Good Year.

Featuring a stellar cast including Russell Crowe, Marion Cotillard, and Albert Finney, the film follows the story of a London-based bond trader Max Skinner (Crowe) who, following the death of his uncle, becomes the sole inheritor of a sprawling vineyard in Provence, southern France.

Despite initially looking for a quick sale, Skinner fast becomes enamoured with the place – where he used to spend idyllic summer holidays as a child – and the people who inhabit it, throwing up the possibility that there could be something in the wine business for him after all.

Upon its release, the film split the critics from the general viewing audience – with the former viewing it as a soppy departure from Scott’s normally gritty showings, and the latter viewing it as a perfectly enjoyable watch, and an interesting change of pace for both Scott and Crowe.

Regardless of anything else, what is without question is that A Good Year is a stunningly-shot piece of cinema featuring strong performances from an eminently likeable cast, vividly evoking pastoral images of southern France – a perfect watch with an accompanying glass of wine in hand.

As always we’ll have the drinks covered, and there’ll be a complimentary cocktail or glass of wine waiting for attendees upon arrival – as well as snacks courtesy of our friends at PROPERCORN.

Tickets will be £15 per head, or £20 for a pair when you type in the code ‘vino’ at checkout.
