Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Steve Carrell, Blake Lively, Kristen Stewart, Corey Stoll

Familiar Woody Allen themes of infidelity and disenchantment color his newest film about a young Jewish man who tries to strike up a life for himself in 1930s Hollywood. Things grow complicated as he falls for his Uncle’s secretary (Stewart), not knowing she’s having an affair with his uncle (Carrell). Shades of The Apartment (1960) throughout the picture. Solid tragicomedy, middle of the road Allen film.
