The Movie Club: Midnight in Paris (when it really sizzles)

The city of light has brought out the very best of Woody Allen. That’s right, the filmmaker synonymous with New York knocks it out of the Tuileries with his finest European effort since Vicky Cristina Barcelona
In an absolutely inspired piece of casting, Owen Wilson plays Allen’s onscreen alter ego, a screenwriter and wannabe novelist who’s head-over-heels for Paris in the 1920s. A brilliant ensemble that includes Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, Michael Sheen and Frances’ own first lady Carla Bruni marvelously supports Wilson as he bumbles his way along the Seine, bumping into some very familiar faces along the way!
Empire Magazine’s David Michael Brown and fellow Movie Clubber Oscar Hillerstrom join me, Alice Tynan, for a wonderfully fun and wondrously romantic tour of Paris with our unlikely guide, Woody Allen! 
(I've finally figured out how to embed the video, so just click play and enjoy!)

To hear more about Midnight in Paris, you can listen to my review on 702 ABC Sydney. And I can also highly recommend you download Francine Stock's marvellous interview with Woody Allen over on BBC Radio's The Film Programme

Hi Alice,

Great Work hosting as always, you seem like such a natural in the hosting chair.

Hopefully I'll see you in Sydney next year.
