About the Movie
Some people need the truth to live. Others not so much. On Halloween night, the lives of two suburban couples unravel forever under the influence of a Peruvian wine brewed from the toxic skin of blue dart tree frogs. This tribal elixir effectively reduces all inhibitions to nothing, and soon friendships and relationships are revealed to be not quite what they seemed. By turns brutally funny, wickedly honest, and unashamedly human, the film explodes personal and cultural taboos and lays bare the horror and beauty beneath our carefully composed public personas. Imagine a bobsled ride down Mt. Everest...on a moonless night...during a blizzard. That is the essence of "Vino Veritas." Just hang on, and hope for the best.
Vino Veritas is a terrific indie with great characters and dialogue. It reminded me of a modern-day "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolfe" and all the actors give impressive performances -- especially loved Carrie Preson (of Good Wife and True Blood fame). I look forward to watching more films from director Sarah Knight and writer David MacGregor.

Great acting, great directing, really a satisfying surprise
I'm a Broadway producer who watches the occasional indie flick, looking for talent, and I have to say this film really surprised me, in a good way. The acting and directing all flow in that rare way when everything's working just right: casting, pacing, with genuine human characters on display speaking the truth, and genuine comedic situations. I think the poster should show the actors' faces, because this really is cinematic 'portraiture' at a very high level. I wonder about the film's exhibition history, and festival pedigree, because it really seemed like a Sundance-level film, quality-wise: indeed, it seemed like a Sundance prize winning type of film. I see a lot of films and a lot of plays, and trust me: this one pays off in a really satisfying way. When the viewer enjoys 'being in the room with the characters', it's the rarest achievement there is: this film achieves that, in spades.
A must see
This film gets down to the nitty gritty. Very enjoyable!!!
