Sideways (2004) - Screenplay by Alexander Payne & Jim Taylor - Writing a Movie - Review

March 18, 2019

‘Sideways’ was an enjoyable script to discuss, because it is a comedy with many tragic elements that always stays rooted in reality and its flawed characters. Based on the novel by Rex Pickett and adapted for the screen by director Alexander Payne and writer Jim Taylor, it’s a tale of debauchery, adventure, love and friendship set in California’s Santa Barbara wine valley.
