Midnight in Paris

I enjoyed watching this adult relationship drama.

Owen Wilson plays the part of Gil Pender, a writer who is experiencing pre-wedding jitters. Director Woody Allen uses creative license to send him back to the Golden Age (1920s). There, he meets up with such literary and artistic greats as Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Gertrude Stein. Kathy Bates delivers an outstanding performance as Stein. Carla Bruni appears briefly as a tour guide.

While the film deals with the past as a real place, it gently underscores the limits of nostalgia.

Watch the trailer.
