It's absolutely great and one can see that Woody Allen has left his mark on this. Very romantic, slightly melancholic, but also a reality check. It's difficult to find movies like this one - it doesn't kill the idea with too much sweetness or drama.Definitely worth watching.

Good to pass the time.

Allen seldom (or never) disappoints. In later years he has had more budget to produce lavish films, like costume dramas. This is one, what with all those sets, costumes cars of the period, etc. His story telling is clever. It usually has surprises. Of course the main character is himself, as usual, even when he does not play it himself.

Interesting

Well made film, great acting, great settings. I just didn't understand the point of the story. Following these self absorbed and selfish people was painful - yet realistic - and pointless - but some lives are just like that. I guess it was too realistic, a story just for the sake of it or was there some reflection to be had from it? It just left me feeling deflated.... dissatisfied...

A beautiful film - romantic, poignant and funny
Verified purchase
A great film. Beautiful locations and sets in LA and New York, and Kirsten Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg are excellent as the leads. A gentle romantic comedy in the vein of La La Land with a great soundtrack. Woody Allen's direction brings in the richness of the Jewish characters within the wider family. A really relaxing but poignant film - thoroughly recommended.

woody still on form.
Verified purchase
I enjoy woody allens latest films because he tries to do a variety of themes and not seeing him sometimesis a bonus because he played such neurotic roles in his earlier work. the era he focuses this time is the 1930s and a hollywood party scene. the man playing the hapless nephew was very good and there were some funny moments. beautiful locations and detail.

Yaaaawn
Verified purchase
All I can say is that I was so bored, I contemplated several times switching off before the end. It felt contrived and pretentious. Or maybe I have just outgrown that Woody Allen style. You would have to be a real fan to sit through this. Quirky little moments and the typical selection of characters and insightful Allen comments on 'life and love' - but overall, just Dull!

Easy watching Rom Com
Verified purchase
An easy going Rom Com, Allen's plot is somewhat predictable and Jesse Eisenberg is on occasion the incarnation of Allen, his phrasing in some scenes it pure Woody Allen.

Loved it
Verified purchase
This is a beautifully subtle film, I feel like I need to watch it over again. The storyline has a hypnotic quality, with all the visual delights and style of the era. I was a bit frustrated at first at the slightly ambiguous ending, but actually having thought about it I now love that I'm not quite sure what happened next..
