A Canadian drama film directed by Richard J. Lewis, based on the prize-winning comic novel of the same name by Mordecai Richler with Paul Giamatti in the title role. The film was nominated for the Golden Lion at the 67th Venice International Film Festival.
Barney Panofsky (Paul Giamatti) is a seemingly ordinary man who lives an extraordinary life. Barney’s candid confessional spans four decades and two continents, and includes three wives (Rosamund Pike, Minnie Driver, and Rachelle Lefevre), one outrageous father (Dustin Hoffman) and a charmingly dissolute best friend (Scott Speedman).”
