Sideways (2004) Poster

Sideways directed by Alexander Payne is a sincere and very down to the earth movie (exactly like its main character). The movie is the story an average progressive and dynamic personality with all his naiveness, humbleness, sense of humanity and his ongoing struggle to keep his possitive personality in a world that others with totally different qualities might rule easier. Paul Giamatti who acts as Mile in this movie, does a superb job with his consistent performance. Actually his performance is the major factor which kept me very focused for the whole 2 hours. Unbelievable that he's not at least nominated for the academy awards. Anyway, people like Mile are around us and many of us share a lot of similarities in our characteristics and daily life with them. Hope all of them end up with fairly good endings after all of the sideways that they go through.
