Woody Allen returns to the realm of fizzy, funny, and fine romantic farce in this sparking example of why he remains America’s preeminent comedic auteur. In the French Riviera at the height of the roaring 20s, a deliciously delirious battle of wit and wills unfolds as staunch skeptic Stanley Crawford (Colin Firth) is sent on a mission to the Côte d’Azur mansion of the Catledge family to debunk a beguiling young medium (Emma Stone). But following a series of infinitely charming and exceedingly magical events, the man once steadfast in his belief that life is dull begins to change. Perhaps, he thinks, when it comes to matters of the heart, there are some things you just can’t possibly know for certain. Firth and Stone are an absolute delight to behold, and their glistening chemistry anchors a star-studded ensemble cast featuring Jacki Weaver, Hamish Linklater, and Marcia Gay Harden, all of which is sure to make for an utterly unforgettable closing night gala.
