Café Society stars Jesse Eisenberg as James, a young man who arrives in Hollywood during the 1930s, hoping to work in the film industry. There, he falls in love with Theresa (Kristen Stewart), and finds himself swept up in the vibrant café society that defined the spirit of the age.
Written and directed by the prolific Woody Allen, it’s been a while since I saw one of his films – there’s a lot going on, here, but it all looks just a bit too daft and not quite my bag.
The film also stars Blake Lively (The Age of Adaline), Corey Stoll (Ant-Man), Steve Carell (The Big Short), Parker Posey, Judy Davis, Paul Schneider and Ken Stott and is released in France on May 11th, for the Cannes Film Festival, plus August 12th in the US, but as of yet, there’s no UK release date.
