A Good Year

Max Skinner (Russell Crow) is having A Good Year in the markets, until he is bequeathed a Chateau in France. Taking time away from the office, the oft-times unscrupulous businessman goes to check out the value of his inheritance. But once surrounded by the castle's charm, the tycoon finds himself toying with the idea of trading in his highlife for a simple, yet poorer, country existence. Unfortunately, viewers will find this sterling premise is tarnished by some content concerns. Get the movie review and more. »
