A young man faces his father’s disapproval when he pursues his dream of becoming a master sommelier instead of joining the family’s barbecue business.
“Uncorked is so beautifully executed. It’s ultimately not that informative about wine nor barbecue (though perhaps enlightening for those who had no idea that Master Sommeliers exist), but wine is the pretext that Penny uses to tell a compelling, believable family story. This is a film about a father and son coming to terms with each others’ choices and learning to find a way forward, mixing tears and laughter together for an affecting ride.” quotes the website Polygon.
