{Bottle Shock}


I'm no wine connoisseur, but I can always appreciate a great film about it!

Directed by Randall Miller Bottle Shock is based on a true story that chronicles the events leading up to the famous 1976 'Judgment of Paris' tastings, told through the lives of father and son, Jim and Bo Barrett. A former real estate attorney, Jim (Bill Pullman) sacrificed everything to realize his dream of creating the perfect hand-crafted chardonnay.

Meanwhile in Paris, British wine shop owner Steven Spurrier (Alan Rickman) hopes to revive his own failing business by sponsoring a competition which will pit the traditional French powerhouse against the California upstarts. Little did they realize that they were both on course to change the history of wine forever.

The film stars Chris Pine, Alan Rickman, Bill Pullman, Rachael Taylor, Freddy Rodríguez , Dennis Farina, Eliza Dushku. Bottle Shock opens in select theaters August 6th.
