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.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in A Good Year...
This movie’s heart is in the right place as far as recognizing the importance of relationships and honoring a deceased relative’s wishes. Yet, the protagonist’s choice of the highlife in London versus the peaceful bliss of a French chateau is hardly a difficult dilemma. The moral value of the movie is further overshadowed by a number of sexual expletives and crude terms for sex, which is unusually high for this film’s rating category. An unmarried sexual relationship is heavily implied and discussions about sex, along with a few revealing outfits, are included. A casual attitude toward children drinking wine is portrayed and a young boy pretends to smoke a cigar. A man is slightly injured while attempting some household repairs.
