After landing a job with his uncle, Bobby falls for Vonnie, a charming woman who happens to be his employer’s mistress. Settling for friendship but ultimately heartbroken, Bobby returns to the Bronx and begins working in a nightclub. Everything falls into place when he finds romance with a beautiful socialite, until Vonnie walks back into his life and captures his heart once again.


• Director 

Woody Allen

• Pass/Fail

Pass: Stunning costumes & scenery with a perfect cast, quirky sense of humor and a great storyline. I now miss living in LA even more.. That Mexican restaurant 


Fail: There has been a lot of upset surrounding how Jews & Black people were portrayed in this film or lack of.. it has been said this film was airbrushed.. but I enjoyed it and didn’t notice this so I wouldn’t take ‘the haters’ comments so seriously. It’s a great watch.. even if it is a little dreamy!


• Standout Performance

Kristen Stewart (I actually like her now!) & Jesse Eisenberg. Blake was stunning 

• Who Will Like This?

1930’s / Old Hollywood fans / Woody Allen fans & anyone who loves a romance period costume film!


• See It Now or Wait?

See it now.. its a great cinema film!

• Is there an end credit scene?


• Highlight

THE COSTUMES!!! and the quirky humor 🙂


• Overall Impression

Overall, this film is Woody Allen’s most charming film since Midnight in Paris and maybe the most beautiful to look at. It’s a pretty little reminder of what once was in the golden days of Old Hollywood. *Oh I wish I could go to that time*
