Last Summer we told you about the upcoming Napa Valley film ‘Bottle Shock’, which was being put together by filmmaker Randall M. Miller. The film tells the story of the early days of California winemaking and the monumental 1976 blind tasting in Paris. Well, here we are in January 2008 and the film has made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.
The fine folks at CinemaBlend.com have a review and recap from Park City, which you can find here. The opening pretty much sums it up:
Is there room in the world for yet another movie about wine? If the movie is Bottle ShockÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ then nope. Director Randol Miller has assembled an amazing and talented cast, but he uses them on a disjointed script which never seems to find its focus.
