Based on the novel "Sideways" by Rex Pickett, the film "Sideways" is the story of two old friends on one last bachelor getaway. Miles (Paul Giamatti) is a divorced, unpublished novelist who channels his frustrations into his love of wine. Jack (Thomas Haden Church) is a has-been actor on the verge of marriage, determined to throw caution to the wind before his wedding on the following Saturday. They embark on a week-long getaway to Santa Barbara wine country. They taste many wonderful wines and meet many interesting people, including Maya (Virginia Madsen) and Stephanie (Sandra Oh), whom they’ll never forget: and neither will we.
