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.

Manhattan plus introduction

Melissa is a final year PhD Candidate at Northumbria University and her research explores the on and off screen presence of women in contemporary American indie cinema, and examines the work of filmmakers such as Miranda July, Lena Dunham, and Nicole Holofcener. Melissa is a long-time fan of Woody Allen, and his experimentation with gender politics and the romantic comedy genre has heavily influenced her research.
