A mysterious younger woman. An older man. A love affair. A double-cross. Magic? Europe, definitely. An observatory in the moonlight. Jazz. Nostalgia for the 1920s. France, more specifically. Banter! An ensemble cast. What’s missing from Woody Allen’s new film, Magic in the Moonlight?
From the trailer, the only thing that keeps this from being the genuine article is a role for the director himself. Or someone playing his facsimile.
Emma Stone and Colin Firth star as a psychic medium and a Houdini-esque magician out to debunk her claims. (And wear yellow-face.) Also starring Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater, Erica Leerhsen, Jacki Weaver, Simon McBurney, Eileen Atkins, Jeremy Shamos and Antonia Clarke. Coming from Sony Pictures on July 25th.
