Best Films of the Decade - #22: Sideways (2004)

Alexander Payne's Sideways is a finely measured comedy of manners between four reactive and relatable characters. They are all completely fleshed out by a wonderful cast headed by the impeccable Paul Giamatti. Themes of indecision, age, and renewal abound as our characters face the anxiety of various life changes about to occur, ultimately forcing them to accept their lives for what they are and enjoy what they can, when they can. A sad, funny, but hopeful story of pain and growth.
