‘Midnight in Paris’ a Flashback to Hemingway’s Age

May 27, 2011

Woody Allen’s latest film Midnight in Paris mopped up gushing reviews from Cannes, opening up Hemingway’s Paris to a new audience of moviegoers. (See the trailer here.)

I’d warn about spoilers, but the Hemingway cat has been out of the bag since the reviews started to roll out. Owen Wilson stars as a struggling writer enamored with the Paris of the 1920s. And who can blame him? How can you not be in love with that storied city at that storied time?

He finds himself magically (and inexplicably) pulled into the Paris of the past, and into a Peugeot en route to a party with F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, et al. We meet Hemingway, Picasso, Buñuel, Gertrude Stein, T.S. Eliot. Ahh, the list goes on and on.

“Midnight in Paris reportedly charmed even the jaded veterans of the Cannes press screenings,” writes Roger Ebert, who was smitten with the film. “There is nothing to dislike about it.”

Some other stellar reviews for the film:

Boston Herald: “As someone who recently spent several midnights in Paris, I can tell you that Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris is a lot cheaper and almost as much fun.”

Variety: “It leaps to life as a dazzling period movie and journeys back to Paris of the 1920s, populated by iconic artists.”

Can’t wait to see it.
