A Walk in the Clouds

From stomping on wine, to fanning frosted grapes like an angel, no one does it as romantic and sexy as Keanu Reeves. The dreamy 1995 film A Walk in the Clouds, will swift you away from your couch to the idyllic vineyards of Napa Valley (cinematically dated in 1945, just after World War II). The movie revolves around the love story of a newly discharged Marine (Keanu Reeves) and a noble vineyard heiress. They met awkwardly on a train ride, and Keanu ended up having to pretend to be her husband. If you have not seen this period film, we will leave the premise at that so you can enjoy the story.
