A downtrodden man (Joe Pantoliano) experiences an ethical crisis and travels back to his hometown in rural Italy to recalibrate his moral compass.
In a rare leading role, Joe Pantoliano stars as Marco Gentile, an Italian born CEO of a Canadian automobile company. He is at a crossroads in his life. Tired of the grind and troubled by an unkept promise he made years ago; he throws it all away. Without consulting his wife Marina he quits his high-paying job and hopes to reconnect to a way of life that will help him find his centre and regain his moral compass. ‘From the Vine’ breathes the same fragrant air as ‘Under the Tuscan Sun,’ ‘A Good Year’ and any number of other movies that offer up beautiful scenery and a stripped-down way of life as a tonic for the soul.
