The warm, wise and witty story of the politically incorrect life of Barney Panofsky (Paul Giamatti), who meets the love of his life (Rosamund Pike) at his second wedding – and she is not the bride!
Told from Barney’s point of view, the film spans three decades, taking us through his marital escapades with Clara (Rachelle Lefevre) a flame haired flagrantly unfaithful free spirit; the second Mrs. Panofsky (Minnie Driver) a wealthy Jewish Princess who talks incessantly and finally Miriam, who is THE love of his life. With his adoring father (Dustin Hoffman) always by his side, even when he is accused of murder, Barney takes us through the many highs and lows of his long and colourful life. Based on Mordechai Richler’s award winning novel.
