Liam Peters's rating of the film Barney's Version

It's all over the place but what life story isn't? Paul Giamatti is in top form and Rosamund Pike - seriously what does the woman have to do to get some awards attention - splendid as one of his put upon wives. The entire cast is good and despite an unnecessary ending the film leaves a contented feeling at its conclusion. Good without being great.
