Cafe Society 🎬 a movie review πŸΎ

August 31, 2016

I must admit I am not a fan of Woody Allen as a person, but as a director and film maker he is very good. Match Point, Blue Jasmine, Vicki Christina Barcelona, Midnight in Paris  – definitely all movies I thoroughly enjoyed and would watch again and again.

So I was extremely excited to discover Woody Allen’s latest movie was out and it was set in my favourite historical era – the 1930’s. A time where ladies dressed in the most glamorous dresses and men were so smart and charming. 

The Movie –


The movie is set in 1930’s Hollywood and New York.

Looking for an exciting career, young Bobby Dorfman leaves New York for the glitz and glamour of 1930s Hollywood. 

After landing a job with his uncle, Bobby falls for Vonnie, a charming woman who happens to be his employer’s mistress. 

Settling for friendship but ultimately heartbroken, Bobby returns to the Bronx and begins working in a nightclub. 


Everything falls into place when he finds romance with a beautiful socialite, until Vonnie walks back into his life and captures his heart once again.

Verdict –

As always Woody Allen has done it yet again! Transported me to another era, another place in time. This movie is like watching a documentary about 1930’s Hollywood. The costumes, the settings, the acting – all so natural and amazingly cast.

The lead roles are played by Jesse Eisenberg – who you may remember played in The Social Network. Kristen Stewart is his love interest Vonnie. 

You will not be bored for one second in the amazing story of love found, then lost, then found again. 

I would have loved to live in that era. Everything just seemed to be much more beautiful then…

I believe the UK release date is September 2nd.
