Netherlands released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), Dutch ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, Trailer(s), SYNOPSIS: Minnie Driver, her sister Kate Driver, and Nigel Hawthorne teamed as the executive producers of this $2.5 million romantic comedy about a mismatched couple. Writer-director John Huddles describes it as "a modern-day fable about what happens when your worldly ambition collides with the love of your life." At Satchem Farm in California's Simi Valley, an expatriate family of transplanted Brits includes maxim-mouthing Cullen (Hawthorne) and ambitious but bankrupt Ross (Rufus Sewell), a failed entrepreneur who plans to sell off his family's final remaining asset, their famed wine collection, in order to purchase an obsolete manganese mine. The manic Ross is engaged to his opposite, cool businesswoman Kendal (Minnie Driver), who succeeds where Ross fails. Kendal kindles her relationship with Ross -- while carrying the torch for someone else. Shown at the 1998 Toronto Film Festival.

Basically, you have Sir Nigel as an eccentric old uncle trying to bring some home truths about values to his dysfunctional family. He spends the second half of the film perched on top of a “twenty cubit high” pillar, manipulating his erring relatives like some Greek god on Mount Olympus until they come to see what really matters in life. Sounds weird, but it is entertaining in a quirky way, the musical soundtrack is exquisite and the cinematography is breath-taking.
One thing did leave me puzzled, though. On the DVD cover the film was called ”At Sachem Farm”; at the start of the film it was called “A Higher Love”. It is also listed and reviewed on amazon.com as “Uncorked”. Maybe someone could enlighten me as to why the same film should have three titles.
