Seeing as how MIDNIGHT IN PARIS was a huge smash and Oscar winner, Woody Allen is smart to stick to Europe for his follow-up. Sure enough, TO ROME WITH LOVE feels very much like a sequel of sorts to MIDNIGHT IN PARIS. To be fair, most Allen films feel like a sequel. Not that that’s a bad thing.
This time, we get to watch Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg, Penelope Cruz, Greta Gerwig, Ellen Page and more as they do the typical Allen thing (fall in love, make mistakes, cause drama, etc). The movie looks gorgeous and a few of the laughs really work in the trailer. Could Allen being hitting a streak here?
Perhaps the most exciting part of TO ROME WITH LOVE is that Allen steps in front of the camera again. The trailer has a few moments of Allen being Allen. Just the way we like him.
TO ROME WITH LOVE opens June 22nd. Thanks to Coming Soon for the trailer.
