The 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival appropriately began with the prolific New York native, Woody Allen’s latest, as he continues on his European adventures, from London, Barcelona, and now, Paris.   Yes, some may say “Midnight in Paris” sticks to his same old formulaic pattern, however, it is so cleverly written with an intriguing and entertaining turn of events, that you shouldn’t let that deter you from the film’s feel good beauty, elegance, comedy, and charm.

When Gil, a novelist and “Hollywood hack who has never given literature an actual chance”, finds himself in Paris with his all-American fiancee, her bourgeois parents, and a pedantic couple that his fiancee knows, he gets bored with the Republican consumers, braggarts and boasters, and turns to the streets for retrospective nostalgia, or “denial of a painful presence”, and discovers inspiration from only the best, including, Ernest Hemingway, Salvador Dali, F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, and Pablo Picasso.  MUST SEE!

Midnight in Paris is now playing in theaters.

Credits: Woody Allen, Rachel McAdams, Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Lea Seydoux, Uma Thurman, Jude Law, and  Robert De Niro in attendance.
