Inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s "The Sun Also Rises," Getting Toasted is a wine-fueled comedy for the new "lost generation": Millennials. Whether you are drinking with us or nursing one heck of a hangover – the film’s balance of "booze and bros" humor with candid character drama will have you reaching out to your besties to book a vineyard adventure of your own.

Synopsis: Friends on an epic winetasting weekend attempt to cheer up their heartbroken buddy after he’s dumped just days before his wedding. With a beautiful vineyard and all the wine intended for the wedding at their disposal, a life changing extravaganza of food, wine, and shenanigans set them on a new path and prove once and for all that nothing heals a broken heart like good wine and good friends.

Lise Romanoff, Managing Director/CEO of Vision Film shares, "Getting Toasted is thoroughly entertaining comedy set in an incredibly beautiful location that adds to its unique feel and message. This is the perfect film to watch with good friends and a glass of wine!"  

"Getting Toasted perfectly showcases the creativity of Casey Zilbert, a first-time director from New Zealand, and a talented cast including one North American ex-pat," adds TALK’s Terese Linden Kohn.

Starring Hayden Weal (Dead), Nick Davies (Filthy Rich), Gemma Knight (Over and Out), Katrina George (Bats), Steve Barr (Pete’s Dragon)

Getting Toasted will be available on all major streaming and cable platforms across the US and Canada on July 12.
