Barney’s Version


on Oct 24, 2012

“Barney’s Version” is the warm, wise, and witty story of Barney Panofsky (Paul Giamatti), a seemingly ordinary man who lives an extraordinary life. The film takes us through the many highs, and many more lows, of our hero’s long and colorful life. The reason that Barney must tell his story now — or, at least his version of it — is that his sworn enemy has just published a tell-all book that dredges up the more compromising chapters of Barney’s past. Giamatti shines in a Golden Globe-winning performance. Film also stars Dustin Hoffman and Minnie Driver. (Dir. Richard J. Lewis)
