After he inherits a French vineyard and estate, calculating businessman Max (Russell Crowe) hopes to sell it and get back to his high-powered London life. Instead, A Good Year’s Provençal trifecta of food, wine, and women teaches him about joie de vivre. EXTRAS Skip the videos of Crowe’s band 30 Odd Foot of Grunts in favor of the behind-the-scenes featurettes Postcards From Provence. The cast and crew’s joie de filmmaking is evident in the interviews with everyone from director Ridley Scott to the onset dog trainer. The film should be so easily charming. B
