Bring on the Drama & Crack Open Some Wine


You Will Be My Son

There’s nothing wrong with indulging in a glass or two of vino on occasion, which is why Manhattan with a Twist is excited for next week’s release of You Will Be My Son. The movie, which opens August 16th in select theaters from Cohen Media Group, is a French family drama set in a prestigious vineyard in Saint Emilion, France. The film was directed by Gilles LeGrand (Micmacs, Malabar Princess).

YOU WILL BE MY SON, focuses on the problematic relationship between Paul Marseul, (Niels Arestrup), the vineyard owner, and his son, Martin (Loran Deutsch), who works with him on the family estate.  Paul is a demanding and passionate winemaker but is a domineering father. He is not happy that his son may one day succeed him. He dreams of a son who is more talented, more charismatic . . . and more in line with his own aspirations. Things deteriorate as Paul’s trusted manager Francois  (Patrick Chesnais) is dying of cancer. When Francois’ son Philip(Nicolas Bridet), also in the wine business,  returns from California to look after his father, Paul sees Philip as his ideal son and turns away from his own flesh and blood.
Ah, a drama centered around wine. What could be more enticing? Well, drinking a bottle while you watch it, of course! Prep for the film’s release by picking out a fine French wine! Cheers! Wines Delivered-468x60
