BendFilm: Grape

Posted By on Fri, Oct 4, 2013 at 10:00 AM


Vineyards are good looking, so naturally they make fabulous settings for movies. Sideways, A Good Year and Parent Trap are just a few of the many films set in vineyards. Add the short film Grape to the list. Writer and director Daniel Stine uses the scenery to create a haunting, sometimes verging on creepy, but still beautiful setting.
The film follows vineyard owner and professional grump Grayson Delcourt who is planning to sell his family winery including the highly contested “back 40” acres, a plot of land that has never produced a drinkable wine. Delcourt is joined by Stine who plays Tyler, a young man finding the bottom of every bottle of wine he can on the way to a life altering surgery in New York City. The disheveled Tyler finds himself stranded at Delecourt’s vineyard over night, where he wonders the property in a dream-like trance guided by the heir to the Delecourt winery.
The cinematography of a partially abandoned vineyard is gorgeous and evocative backdrop for the films exploration of mortality.
