I’ve been wondering where director Niki Caro has been. After delivering the stunningly brilliant Whale Rider in 2002, she followed it up with another great effort in North Country, but The Vintner’s Luck will only be her third film within the span of nearly a decade. She’s not the most prolific, but so far, she’s done nothing but produce quality. Perhaps being picky has paid off.
That looks to be the case here again with the trailer for her forthcoming flick that focuses on a peasant who learns the grape-stomping trade in order to rise in the ranks of society and get Vera Farmiga drunk.
The trailer has just about everything you could ask for, including vibrant production design, some romantic conflict, and, of course, a mysterious angel that appears in the night to giveth and taketh away in equal measure.
Check it out for yourself:
The movie pairs Caro back with Whale Rider star Keisha Castle-Hughes as well as Jeremie Renier (who you might remember from the Hiert Lockier). Farmiga rounds out the cast as someone of higher stature that seems to like what’s in Renier’s wineskin.
