An earnest, scrappy, and finally touching drama about a young man from Memphis who’s got a dream — he’s a wine buff who wants to become a sommelier — but if he follows it, it will tear him away from everything his father yearned for him to be. That, of course, is part of why it’s a tasty dream.

Solid performances aren’t enough to lift this familiar tale of a Memphis man trying to break out from his family business out from the middle of the road.

Offering a fictionalized version of the hard-core studying seen in Somm — Jason Wise's 2012 doc about people seeking the highest certification in wine expertise — and couching it within a familiar family drama, the film has a solid feel for family dynamics and local color. It won't be the most dramatic movie you see this month — but then, making the elite obsession over vintages and vineyards gripping to an ordinary moviegoer is hardly the easiest job.

In the days where we’re all cooped up at home, there are certainly worse things you could do than settling in front of this pleasant film and its upbeat musical tracks (original music by Hit Boy) with a positive attitude and a smooth bottle of wine. It will go down easy.
