Synopsis


Café Society
A New Yorker named Bobby (Jesse Eisenberg) moves to Hollywood in the 1930s to work for his uncle Phil (Steve Carell), a powerful and well-connected agent. He soon falls for Phil's secretary Vonnie (Kristen Stewart), unaware that she's secretly having an affair with his uncle. In time, a disillusioned Bobby returns home to run a nightclub for his gangster brother (Corey Stoll). Written and directed by Woody Allen, Cafe Society made its world premiere at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

    A boy heads west to make his future. Boy meets girls, boy loses girl, boy...well you'll to watch the film to learn the rest. It's a bittersweet coming of age story that doesn't really beak any cliches but differentiates itself enough to rise above the pack. The cinematography is the real winner here, and KStew's performance is solid. Blu-ray looks and sounds great.

    A bit disappointed; I was expecting something more memorable. It's engaging, but a bit lame. Nice entertainment, pleasant actors, but the story is a bit contrived. Once you got the point there is not much as a plot expectation; just ask yourself how they are going to get out of that predicament and the end is not very exciting. Happy Ending??

    I never really considered myself a Woody Allen fan, but this movie, in addition to his "Midnight in Paris" movie from a few years ago, have won me over. The casting, cinematography, and storyline are amazing. There aren't too many movies that I've seen that I enjoy watching over again, but this is one for sure.

    Story of young love, Hollywood and power set in the 30's. typical Woody Allen script. At times Jesse Eisenberg even sounds like Woody Allen. I'm keeping this one for my collection as I'm sure I'll watch it again.

    If you are fan of Woody Allen, then you should add this to your collection. I like how it is set in the era of Hollywood's Golden Age. Plus, add Woody's scripted dialogue. It can't go wrong.

    Good acting from Jessie Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Corey Stoll and Blake Lively is a "wow" in a small role. Young boy goes west finds love or does he? Set in the 30's between LA & NY.
