A smash hit among literary critics and winner of countless awards, Barney’s Version is a hilarious and moving account of one man’s personal life journey and a superb adaptation of one of the most infamous characters created by the celebrated Canadian novelist.
Barney Panofsky (in a brilliant performance by Paul Giamatti, The Last Station, Sideways), smokes too much, drinks too much, and falls in love too much. A 67-year old television producer with three marriages under his belt, his past is rife with mistakes and regrets. When a former acquaintance threatens to reveal an assortment of his past sins, he decides to present the world with his own version of events. What follows is a desperately funny and poignant telling of a highly flawed character’s life story.
