“This place doesn’t suit my life. No Max, your life doesn’t suit this place.” That dialog from “A Good Year” sums up the film pretty well. Max (Russell Crowe) is a cruel opportunist, money worshiping, ruthless Englishman. All his good childhood memories take place at his uncle’s vineyard in France and when he returns all he seems to be interested in is the money.
While having an interesting storyline and some fun moments, “A Good Year” is filled with objectionable material for the family in four out of six Dove categories.
