A Movie I Am Predisposed to Hate

I saw a movie trailer the other night that provoked me to speak back audibly--and not kindly--to the little flickering faces on the television.

It was for a movie called "A Good Year." It stars Russell Crowe.

Here is the premise, as I could glean from the trailer...

A very, very rich and successful Wall Street trader still feels no satisfaction with his sad lonely life and so, to find meaning, he moves to Europe (Italy? France?), ensconces himself at what amounts to a castle, and has sex with a gorgeous twenty-something. And thus he is happy.

We get what we deserve, I suppose.
