Café Society

Rated PG-13 96 minutes 2016

Woody Allen nostalgia-mobile is truly beautiful to look at, but has writing problems. In the 1930s, a young New Yorker (Jesse Eisenberg) comes to Hollywood to work for his talent agent uncle (Steve Carell), falls in love with the uncle’s secretary (Kristen Stewart), and learns… well, we never really find out if he learns anything at all. The movie wanders back to New York, a subplot becomes the main story line, and we end up in a gangster’s lost-romance reverie. One of writer-director Allen’s fuzziest late-period light dramas, although with fine perfs by Eisenberg, Carell, and Stewart, plus superlative cinematography and production design by Vittorio Storaro and Santo Loquasto, respectively. Approach with caution (98 min., 2016, rated PG-13)
