Midnight in Paris

2010, 90m, Woody Allen

The year is 2010. The Woody Allen proxy, a successful film script writer aspiring to be a novelist, catches a taxi which takes him on a time travel to the 1920s where he encounters the likes of Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Picasso, Bunuel and others. It is quite diverting to encounter these luminaries in caricature even as the young man learns some necessary lessons about life. A light, enjoyable and forgettable comedy, informatively back-grounded by Paris and Cole Porter.
