Midnight in Paris

Sweet Woody Allen comedy about a writer in Paris with his fiancee, their divergent dreams, and his increased understanding of his dreams based on an unlikely situation involving travelling back in time to the 1920s to find himself hanging out with F. Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso, and so on.  Owen Wilson doesn’t bring much to the film but it somehow fits, but Michael Sheen does a great job of being a smug prat. Corey Stoll as Hemingway was quite fun although I realised the main string to his character bow was keeping his head still. Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard, Lea Seydoux, Alison Pill and Carla Bruni all exquisite. 👍
