Paul Giamatti, Minnie Driver and Dustin Hoffman in Barney's Version trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
The indie comedy BARNEY’S VERSION has flown under the radar until this international trailer was released. It has a SIDEWAYS kind of feel to it, but maybe it’s just Paul Giamatti. The film is about a lifelong underachiever that marries the wrong woman and then immediately falls in love with another. There’s also a subplot where he’s a “person of interest” in the murder of one of his friends. Minnie Driver, Dustin Hoffman, Scott Speedman, Rosamund Pike and Bruce Greenwood also star in the film directed by Richard J. Lewis.
Paul Giamatti makes every film he’s in much better and he’s at his best where he’s allowed to just go crazy with his character. It looks like that’s what we get here and it should make for a fun film.
