Defining, dry Woody Allen paean to New York City.Total Film
A new digital print of Woody Allen’s monochrome masterpiece. Allen combines witty dialogue, the music of George Gershwin, and atmospheric location shooting in one of his best romantic comedies. Isaac (Allen), a neurotic writer in his forties, is romantically involved with Tracy, a 17-year-old student. But things get complicated when he starts to date Mary (Diane Keaton), his best friend's ex-mistress.
