A Good Year is the story Max Skinner (Russell Crowe), a London banker who inherits his uncles estate.
“A man should acknowledge his losses just as gracefully as he celebrates his victories. You’ll come to see that a man learns nothing from winning. The act of losing, however, can elicit great wisdom. Not least of which is, uh… how much more enjoyable it is to win. It’s inevitable to lose now and again. The trick is not to make a habit of it.” – Uncle Henry
“Forgive my lips. They find joy in the most unusual places.” – Max Skinner
“There’s something you should know about me, Max. I’m very, very choosy… I’m also very, very suspicious; very, very irrational, and I have a very, very short temper. I’m also extremely jealous and slow to forgive. Just so you know.” – Fanny Chenal
“My uncle loved women, although no one for a long time, and he never married. He loved England, yet lived in France. He was an adventurer, yet all my memories take place within 100 steps of this spot.” – Max Skinner
