Woody Allen, has found a credible blend of whimsy and wisdom with Midnight In Paris. The central story revolves around an American writer's (Owen Wilson) great love for a city, Paris, and the illusion people have that a life different from theirs would be much better.
The city is shot beautifully and the script is full of wit. I loved the whole package. For those who've been waiting to fully enjoy a Woody Allen film (or an Owen Wilson one), this is a dream.
Simply Put: Charming
Award Potential: comedy picture, director, screenplay and actor (globes) long shot picture, screenplay (academy awards)
Ten Buck Review: Worth 10 bucks
