An unironic Allen in LA

Subduing many of the director’s most prominent idiosyncracies, CAFÉ SOCIETY sees Woody Allen deliver a stylish and entertaining period film set in 1930’s Hollywood and New York, which recalls his fondly remembered RADIO DAYS. The film tells the tale of Bobby, a young New Yorker who thanks to his powerful uncle gets a foot in the door of the Los Angeles film industry and ends up falling in love with his uncle’s mistress. Featuring Hollywood’s hottest young neurotics Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart in the lead roles, CAFE SOCIETY is easily Allen’s best film since BLUE JASMINE.
