“…a complete delight from start to finish, deliciously sophisticated and funny.” – Deadline
Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively and Steve Carrell, Woody Allen’s bittersweet new film is set in the nineteen-thirties, and tells the tale of Bobby Dorfman, from the Bronx. Bobby goes to Los Angeles and hooks up with his Uncle Phil, an agent to the stars. Phil is always busy and so his assistant, Vonnie, gets to show the rube around town. They duly fall in love… except that there’s a hitch: Vonnie is already having an affair with Phil.
