CAFÉ SOCIETY

WOODY ALLEN

This film was released 2nd September 2016, and is no longer screening.

★★★★ Telegraph

Jesse Eisenberg is the latest in a continuum of leading men who have essayed versions of Woody Allen’s unique persona in the director’s later years, and he fills the shoes better than most as Bobby, a typically neurotic New Yorker who moves to Los Angeles to work for his uncle Phil (Steve Carell), a suave Hollywood agent to the stars.

Complications arise when Phil assigns his PA (Kristen Stewart) to look after the nervous Bobby, whom he swiftly falls for, even though she is having an affair with a married man. Bathed in amber hues by the great cinematographer Vittorio Storaro, Café Society, with its gorgeously realised, if romanticized recreation of 1930s Hollywood glamour is that most unexpected of Woody Allen films, a love letter to LA, a city he has more often lampooned. (Notes by David O’Mahony.)
