midnight in paris

UncategorizedAnna Keller1 Comment

there are so many reasons to love this movie:

  • fabulous 1920s costumes
  • intellectual characters - Hemingway! Dali! the Fitzgeralds!
  • Woody Allen choosing to be charming and witty rather than whiny
  • Carla Bruni, Marion Cotillard, and many other lovely French women
  • an air conditioned movie theater
  • French that I could understand without the assistance of subtitles
  • Paris in the rain
  • antique markets
  • the fact that I am going to Paris in the fall
  • literary, art, and music references that you must be relatively knowledgeable to understand
  • a reason to be annoyed with Rachel McAdams
I love Woody Allen films, and this is one of his most magical.  go see it!
