Barney's Version
Filmfest 2011

Take a ride through the life and memories of Barney Panofsky, a hard-drinking, cigar-smoking, foulmouthed 65-year old hockey fanatic and television producer, as he reflects on his life's successes and (numerous) gaffes and failures as the final chapters of his own existence come sharply into focus. "Paul Giamatti brings passion and ferocious fun to pain-in-the-ass Barney Panofsky, a Canadian TV producer and murder suspect who looks back on his life and three failed marriages through the prism of oncoming Alzheimer's. I'll say no more, except that Rosamund Pike is perfection as Barney's true love, and Dustin Hoffman makes magic as Barney's randy dad. It's acting heaven." Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
