Barney’s Version tells the story of the life of Barney Panofsky, played by Paul Giamatti in a Golden Globe–winning performance. As he progresses from young adulthood to old age, Barney ricochets from one romantic entanglement to another while trying to keep his outrageous father (Hoffman) under control and being pursued by a cop who suspects him of murdering his best friend, Boogie (Speedman).
"The impeccably cast confessional, with a pitch-perfect Paul Giamatti leading the way, nimbly traverses the four decades in its lead character's eventful life with considerable exuberance, visual flair and, ultimately, grace." - Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
