Café Society

Directed by Woody Allen

2016

Café Society is a romantic comedy-drama set in 1930s Hollywood and New York City. The film has occasional glints of ambition, but seems mostly content to be good enough. Like many of his recent films, Café Society is filled with contrived situations, stilted dialogue, funny one liners, and a multitude of Woody Allen stand-ins rather than differentiated characters. Café Society is an entertaining and occasionally thoughtful look at an idealized past and the pain of time’s passage.

Would see.
