Midnight in Paris - Movie Synopsis & Plot
"Midnight in Paris" is a romantic comedy that follows a family travelling to the city for business. The party includes a young engaged couple that has their lives transformed throughout the journey. The film celebrates a young man's great love for Paris, and simultaneously explores the illusion people have that a life different from their own is better.
In the very Woody Allen-esque comedy-drama Midnight in Paris
, coincidentally written and directed by Woody Allen, Owen Wilson plays an awkward, curious man visiting, coincidentally, Paris, who would have been played by Woody Allen if the actor-director hadn't finally figured out that audiences don't want to see him flirting with young women anymore. Hailed as one of Allen's finest movies in years, Midnight in Paris
is a well done little movie. Nothing more, nothing less. Read our Midnight in Paris movie review »
