Midnight in Paris

I just saw this funny, sweet, charming, beautifully composed movie last night. It is a love letter to Paris, a comedy, and also a short course in American writers and French artists of the 1920's. It is also a bit deeper than that but I wont spoil the fun.

If you have been to Paris this film makes you want to go back and if you have never been this film should make you want to visit.

Woody Allen wrote and directed and shot the entire film in Paris this really comes across on the screen as Paris not some fake back lot set. Owen Wilson is perfect as Gil the struggling novelest and Kathy Bates is spot on as Gertrude Stein.

Have a Pink day!


  1. I saw that they are now playing this movie in the Atlanta area so we’ll go and see it next week. I would not go if I had not just been to Paris several weeks ago as I would be too homesick, but as it is, it will be nice. I noticed that the comment I wrote yesterday did not print, I’ll go and place it on your last post again.

  2. I'm really looking forward to seeing this!


  3. Mom and I saw this last week, it was really cute and it made me want to go back to Paris even more. Maybe I'll take her next year;)
