"Barney's Version", a film feature based on Mordecai Richler's novel of the same title, has got its preview in a form of international teaser trailer. It highlights 65-year old hockey fanatic and television producer Barney Panofsky who is in quest of finding his true love after several marriages.
"Barney's Version" is a picaresque and touching story of politically incorrect, fully lived life of the impulsive, irascible and fearlessly blunt Barney. It follows his reckless life which is highlighted by three marriages, two children and status as a "person of interest" in the mysterious disappearance of his friend.
Paul Giamatti takes the lead role, while Dustin Hoffman plays a retired cop as well as Barney's father. Rosamund Pike, Minnie Driver and Rachelle Lefevre are also among the cast ensemble to play Barney's wives. Coming from director Richard J. Lewis, this drama has not set a release date, but is expected to arrive in the U.S. within 2010.
