Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Wine and Romance!
Our February Free Movie:
Our next free Movie in the Vineyard is A Walk in the Clouds (1995). In the words of film reviewer Roger Ebert “A Walk in the Clouds" is a glorious romantic fantasy, aflame with passion and bittersweet longing.” The movie’s central plot is the budding romance between Paul, played by Keanu Reeves, and Victoria, played by Aitana Sanchez-Gijon. Paul has just returned home from fighting in WWII and Victoria is a Masters student who was abandoned by her boyfriend after she became pregnant. Victoria is afraid of returning to the family vineyard in Napa, where she believes her traditional father will “kill her” for dishonoring the family with her pregnancy. Paul offers to pretend to be Victoria’s husband to save her from her father’s wrath. What initially starts as a plan to trick Victoria’s family into thinking that they are married blossoms into true love. With all the obstacles they must face will their love end in heartbreak…find out with your Valentine’s Day sweetheart February 16th!
