Magic in Moonlight

Cast: Emma Stone, Colin Firth, Marcia Gay Harden, Jacki Weaver, Hamish Linklater, Eileen Atkins, Simon McBurney, Erica Leerhsen, Catherine McCormack, Paul Ritter, Jeremy Shamos

For his 47th feature film, the clarinet playing Woody Allen proposes a visit to an era he must be expertly familiar with…1920’s jazz scene in France. Curious in seeing how Emma Stone will flex her muscles.

Gist: This is about an Englishman brought in to help unmask a possible swindle. Personal and professional complications ensue. The film is set in the south of France in the 1920s against a backdrop of wealthy mansions, the Côte d’Azur, jazz joints and fashionable spots for the wealthy of the Jazz Age.

Release Date: Where else would you want to unload a film set in the French Riviera but in Cannes itself. Sony Pictures Classics distributes would will probably be a summer release.
