It opened this year’s Cannes Film Festival and now Woody Allen‘s Café Society has it’s eyes set on it’s UK cinema release and today we get our first look at the film’s UK Trailer.
This week saw the home release of The Coen Brother‘s Hail,Caesar!that pays homage to the The ‘Fixers’ of 1950’s Hollywood, for Woody Allen‘s latest keeps the fixation on Hollywood 1930’s and a starstruck young wannabe.
Set in the 1930s, Woody Allen’s bittersweet romance Café Society follows Bronx-born Bobby Dorfman (Jesse Eisenberg) to Hollywood, where he falls in love, and back to New York, where he is swept up in the vibrant world of high society nightclub life.
Centering on events in the lives of Bobby’s colourful Bronx family, the film is a glittering valentine to the movie stars, socialites, playboys, debutantes, politicians, and gangsters who epitomised the excitement and glamour of the age.
Poignant, and often hilarious, Café Society, a film with a novel’s sweep, takes us on a journey from pastel-clad dealmakers in plush Hollywood mansions, to the quarrels and tribulations of a humble Bronx family, to the rough-and-tumble violence of New York gangsters, to the sparkling surfaces and secret scandals of Manhattan high life.
With Café Society, Woody Allen conjures up a 1930s world that has passed to tell a deeply romantic tale of dreams that never die.
As like all of Allen’s films, you either love him or loathe him, whatever you think the acting fraternity flock to star and this film has a fair share of big names. After a few recent blimps, the veteran director’s latest film looks like he’s back to form, with many positive reviews to back this notion. Visually gorgeous, funny at times and Allen looks like he’ll be making his films for a long time.
Starring Jeannie Berlin, Steve Carell, Blake Lively, Parker Posey, Kristen Stewart, Corey Stoll and Ken Stott, Café Society opens in UK cinemas September 2nd.
