A little out of the ordinary for us, this week we have a short interview with filmmaker Sarah Knight, who directed Vino Veritas, a dark comedy in which wine features prominently. The movie stars Carrie Preston (Emmy winner - CBS's The Good Wife, HBO's Tru Blood). The story revolves around two couples and the night they have once a rare Peruvian "wine" serves as a truth serum for each character. Although wine isn't the subject of the movie like in Somm, Mondovino, or even Sideways, it does have a big role, so this movie is great for people who like character development and wine!

The interview focuses on wine's role in the movie, stereotypes of wine drinkers, and whether alcohol, in general is a truth serum.

Take a listen but for you production junkies, please be forewarned...we were constrained in our technology so it was recorded over the phone. The interview sounds like it's on AM radio, so don't be a hater!

The movie can be downloaded from iTunes and Vudu or Amazon, and the trailer is here:
