Trivia

Director John Huddles told Producer Dan Grodnik they shouldn't shoot this movie in March, especially in the hills, because of the severe rains that were forecast. Grodnik said he only had a small window of availability for Minnie Driver and had to schedule this movie for that time. Grodnik went on to tell Huddles not to worry about a little rain. One rainy afternoon Grodnik got a call from his Line Producer saying the weather had become impossible in which to shoot. Grodnik told him to continue anyway. The Line Producer said he would like to, but the grip truck just washed away down a gully. See more »

Thanks for the review - it was helpful
5 April 2004 | by winkleoutwestSee all my reviews

Thanks Melodie. I, too, am a huge Rufus Sewell fan, and just recently got this film off auction at eBay. I am hesitant to buy movies I haven't seen (especially because I did that for some Russell Crowe movies, and discovered I'd wasted my money in some cases). In this case, the price was so low, I decided it was worth it.

Glad to see I won't be disappointed. After seeing Cold Comfort Farm, I had a feeling I'd be happy with this film, too (titled "Uncorked" in America).

Thanks again - I can't wait to watch it!
