Finally saw “Sideways” last night. What a great film. Shouldn’t have waited so long to see it.
All of the acting is incredibly nuanced, but Paul Giamatti is particularly notable. Watch his reaction at the end of the film when his ex-wife tells him that she’s pregnant. He’s definitely an actor waiting for a breakout role. (Akin to Philip Seymour Hoffman before “Capote.”)
By the way, the Giamatti’s character holds a picture of himself and his late father early in the movie. It’s a real picture of Paul and his father, Bart. His dad, Bart Giamatti, is more well known for being the commissioner of baseball who threw Pete Rose out of the game.
