Midnight in Paris

I’m a sucker for any film set in Paris, and the latest Woody Allen is a charming, wistful love letter to my favorite city. The contemporary setting is enriched by magical excursions to several glorious Parisian eras, notably the Belle Epoque of the 1890s and the interlude between the two world wars. Among the many luminaries we run into are Ernest Hemingway, Picasso, Gertrude Stein, Toulouse Lautrec and F. Scott Fitzgerald (and his mercurial wife Zelda.) Carla Bruni, wife of French President Sarkozy, makes an appearance as a tour guide, though she should probably keep her day job.
