Magic in the Moonlight

magicinthemoonlightIn 1928, famed illusionist Stanley Crawford (Colin Firth) is persuaded by a colleague (Simon McBurney) to take a closer look at a young mystic (Emma Stone); convinced that she must be a fraud, Stanley tries to resist her charms.Ā Another comedy from Woody Allen that’s light as a feather, which it shares with The Curse of the Jade Scorpion (2002), which also featured an illusionist. The uncertainty surrounding Stone’s authenticity puts cynicism against optimism with amusing but bland results. Lovely French Riviera locations; charming efforts from the two leads.

2014-U.S. 97 min. Color. Widescreen. Written and directed byĀ Woody Allen. Cast: Colin Firth (Stanley Crawford), Emma Stone (Sophie Baker), Simon McBurney (Howard Burkan), Hamish Linklater, Eileen Atkins, Marcia Gay Hardenā€¦ Jacki Weaver.Ā
