Can Brad Pitt And Angie Crack Winemaking? Other Grape Based Success Stories


Brad Pitt Angelina Jolie Sam Neill Gerard Depardieu Mick Hucknall

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have announced they are moving into the wine business and will release their first effort - a Vintage Rose - later this year. The grape industry is a fashionable movie for celebrities nowadays, though some take it more serious than others. It's likely that Brangelina have tasted a nice fruity rose and decided to put their name to it, though some actors and musicians have gone the hold hog and bought entire vineries. In 2007, Nielsen's research of supermarket wine purchases showed sales of celebrity wines were up by 19%. It probably gives the consumer something to impress friends with after popping open the cork, "This one is made by Brad and Angelina, you know."

One actor very much active in both the production and business dealings of wine is French-turned-Russian star Gerard Depardieu, who owns wineries in several countries across the globe and even has his passport (now Russian) listing his occupation as vigneron. Since 2001, Depardieu has put his name to 13 different wines with wine mogul Bernard Magrez, mostly in conjunction with another expert, Michael Rolland. During an interview with Decanter.com, the Green Card actor said, "What I don't like is to publish a ban des vendages on a certain date [before which one is not allowed to harvest], I find that stupid. When you taste and you say "that's ready" I don't know why I need to keep it ripening. Sometimes I find wines that are a little overripe. I like wines to be a bit nervy, that aren't too aggressive."

Manchester Holds Sad Memories For Mick Hucknall


Mick Hucknall Simply Red

Mick Hucknall is back with a new solo album - American Soul - and the Simply Red man has been discussing his long and illustrious career and music, his new family and memories of his beloved Manchester. 

American Soul sees Hucknall handpick twelve of his personal favourites from the genre's rich back catalogue, including Etta James' classic I'd Rather go Blind, The Flamingo's I Only Have Eyes for You as well as tracks by Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes, Gregory Isaacs, and the Valentine Brothers. As you may well be aware, Hucknall has been out of the limelight for a while, bringing up a young family, though does he ever get back to his old stomping ground? Speaking to the Manchester Evening News after announcing a show at the city's Apollo theatre, the singer explained, "Since my father died I get a bit sad when I go back. I can't deny it. But on the other hand, Manchester's been so good to me. I made it in Manchester, and it was the things that Manchester provided for me shaped who I am. I remain ever grateful for what that city did for me." You'd be forgiven for suggesting American Soul is a quick money spinner for Hucknall and his record label, though the 52-year-old clearly has plans to get back into the studio and start making records again. Another album in the pipeline sees Hucknall returning to songwriting, "They're all original compositions, I've worked very hard on them and I hope people will like them," he says.

American Soul hits shelves in the UK on Monday (October 29, 2012).

De-Lovely Review


Good

"This is one of those avant-garde things, is it?" says a droll, dubious and dying Cole Porter (Kevin Kline) as he sits in an empty theater at the beginning of "De-Lovely," watching his life pass before his eyes on the stage, in a production conducted by an enigmatic, ironic, ethereal director named Gabe (Jonathan Pryce).

The answer to his question is a delighted "yes." This film is an imaginative, deconstructionist, celebratory musical biography woven together from elements of theater, meta-cinema, chamber drama and Porter's own MGM musicals with gratifying -- if deliberately glossy -- results.

Kline opens the picture as a frail but feisty old man (the age makeup is remarkable) who, as he watches his own story unfold, is alternatively tickled ("Oh, look, it's an opening number!"), critical ("He'd never wear that! Change it."), fondly reminiscent and pained by regret. And the actor also plays the younger Porter in the bulk of the picture, which has a merry, dreamlike quality to its stop-and-start interactions with the elderly Porter and his theatrical spirit guide.
