One of those movies
22 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies at you enjoy while watching it, then at the end you say "It wasn't that good!" and you don't know why.

The story revolves around Franklin Rowe who is the top seller at a large winery. He has a winsome personality and a knack for getting customers to view the wines for sale in a party like atmosphere. Unfortunately his job is destroying him and he's at a dead end in his life.

We follow Franklin as he comes to realize his life just won't get better unless he makes the first move to change it. And in doing just that is what Franklin avoids through his job and easy wine drinking.

I don't know what else to say about this film. You will like Franklin and you will want him to escape his life but the 'getting to that point' in the story at times seems slow.
