The Vintner's Luck

Three Weeks ago my friends from Hoyts Distribution invited me for a media screening of Vintner’s Luck from the Director of Whale Rider – Niki Caro at the Penthouse Cinemas in Wellington with other media people.

The movie is based on the novel by Elizabeth Knox adapted for the screen by Niki Caro and Joan Scheckel.

Set in early  19th century France the Vintner’s Luck tells the compelling tale of Sobran Jodeu( is Belgian actor Jeremie Renier), an ambitious young peasant winemakers and hist life-long relationship with Xas, a fallen angel as they grapple with the sensual, the sacred and the profane in search of the perfect vintage.

Also starring  French actor Gaspard Ulliel as Angel Xas,a curious creature who appears to be more human than divine.

American actress Aurora Vera Famiga, who plays as Aurora de Valday, the intellectual baroness and

New Zealander Keisah Castle-Hughes plays Sobran’s beautiful,spirited young wife,Celeste.

The film will be showing in New Zealand on November 12.
