Preview by Jack Foley
EXPERIENCE the passion that lies behind the perfect vintage in The Vintner’s Luck, released on DVD on September 20, courtesy of Icon Home Entertainment.
Acclaimed New Zealand director Niki Caro (Whale Rider, North Country), Academy Award® nominee Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, The Departed) and Academy Award® nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes (Whale Rider, Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith) join forces with Jérémie Renier (Atonement, In Bruges) and Gaspard Ulliel (Hannibal Rising, A Very Long Engagement) for the long awaited adaptation of Elizabeth Knox’s award-winning novel.
A fantasy romance set in 19th century France, The Vintner’s Luck is the passionate tale of Sobran Jodeau (Renier) an ambitious young peasant winemaker and the three loves of his life – his beautiful wife Celeste (Castle-Hughes), the proudly intellectual baroness Aurora de Valday (Farmiga) and Xas (Ulliel), an angel who strikes up an unlikely but enduring friendship.
Under Xas’ guidance Sobran is forced to fathom the nature of love and belief and in the process grapples with the sensual, the sacred and the profane – in pursuit of the perfect wine.
