Every once in a while our tired Yumologists like to take a break from their kitchens and end the work week kicked back on the couch with a glass of red wine, watching their favorite foodie flicks.

This Friday's Foodie Flick is A Good Year starring Russell Crowe, Marion Cotillard, Freddy Highmore and Albert Finney.

This delicious movie transports its audience to the Provencal region of France, where Max Skinner (Crowe), an overworked, overpaid investment broker from London inherits his long-lost uncle's (Finney) vineyard estate. Torn between selling the estate or rediscovering the flavor of his youth, Max struggles to decide which path in life to follow. Will it be love and life amongst the vines, or cold hard cash in Britain's most ruthless market?
To make your Friday Foodie Flick more enjoyable watch A Good Year with some fresh baked French bread, a wedge of fresh brie, ripened sweet grapes and a glass of Mas de Gougonnier Les Baux de Provence.

Here's a taste of A Good Year:
