Video in­ter­view pro­files with the cast and di­rec­tor and premiere footage. Rarely does Paul Gia­matti star in a role these days that doesn’t of­fer him plenty to sink his teeth into and this melo­drama about love and life is no ex­cep­tion. He stars as an aging booze­hound and TV pro­ducer look­ing back over 30 years of his colour­ful per­sonal life in­clud­ing his friend­ships, mar­riages and ca­reer. It’s an up-and-down tale in which Gia­matti’s jerky char­ac­ter may alien­ate, but it’s well acted – de­light­fully in places by him and his sup­ports – and not with­out charm.
