Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie
March 5th, 2007

Allen's Return To Form

Definitely not your typical Woody Allen film, this drama tells the story of a man (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) who stumbles into the good graces of an exceedingly rich family and marries the daughter of said family (Emily Mortimer), only to fall into a passionate affair with an American actress (Scarlett Johannson). It gets far more complex from there, but I wouldn't dare ruin it for you.

Rhys-Meyers gives a tortured and conniving performance as the foolish Chris, but this film is all Johannson. She proves herself to be worthy of the title of new Woody muse, like Diane Keaton and Mia Farrow before her (she is starring in his latest project 'Scoop', coming out later this year). She is all sex and wildness as Nola, and we can see why any man would leave his wife for her, but also how she could become too much for anyone.

This movie is a retread of 'Crimes and Misdemeanors' to be sure, but for a new age and with electric chemistry. All those who thought Woody had lost his touch should officially be ashamed.
