Two couples experience trouble in their marriage. Just as they seem to be drawing towards resolutions of their problems, they learn there are no easy ways out. In fact, amid all their disappointments, it may only have been their fantasies that have kept them going.
Comedy Romantic - Like most of Woody Allen's films, this is an ensemble romantic comedy
aimed at adult moviegoers. Fans of typically drama-leaning stars such
as Naomi Watts, Anthony Hopkins, and Josh Brolin should be happy to
see this change of pace. Adult subject matter and some language make
the film inappropriate for kids.
After Alfie leaves Helena to pursue his lost youth and a free-spirited call
girl named Charmaine (Lucy Punch), Helena abandons rationality and surrenders
her life to the loopy advice of a charlatan fortune teller.
Unhappy in her marriage, Sally develops a crush on her handsome art gallery
owner boss, Greg (Antonio Banderas), while Roy, a novelist nervously awaiting
the response to his latest manuscript, becomes moonstruck over Dia (Freida
Pinto), a mystery woman who catches his gaze through a nearby window.
Despite these characters' attempts to dodge their problems with pipe dreams
and impracticable plans, their efforts lead only to heartache, irrationality,
and perilous hot water.
